My Prague project : My Prague Cocktail with Photo Contest

On April 10, 2014 senior managers, GMs & CEOs of AmCham members met with representatives of other institutions, ministries, political parties and NGOs to discuss Future of Prague and  vote for the best photo of My Prague Photo Contest sponsored by Huawei Technologies (Czech).

 

Prague has the potential to be one of the world’s meeting places, the city that creates its own Central European culture based on being at the center of Europe’s and the world’s commercial and artistic paths. It could be a city that constantly creates exciting corporate and entrepreneurial opportunities, and offers its citizens a kaleidoscope of interesting ways to spend their leisure time.

Whether we achieve these goals depends on us. Click on the title to see more about project & Photo contest.

Dear Members, Partners and Friends-

May this holiday season bring joy, rest and peace to you, your family and friends, and help you recharge your energy, your hope, and your determination that 2014 will be the best year yet.

For those of us who spend time in its streets and buildings every day, Prague is a magical place to live and work. As part of our project to make our city a center of European business, we want to share that experience for the less fortunate who must work in other European or (oh the great tragedy:-)) American cities. For this reason, we are asking our members to share with us videos and phrases that describe or illustrate why Prague is so special. Look at the video to see the first clips…

The elections are over. Our vote has redistributed power. But it has not determined how that power will be used.

by František Dostálek, President of American Chamber of Commerce in the Czech Republic:

Many of us in business, and the wider community as well, have made the mistake of believing that elections decide the direction of the country. Elections do create the possibility for change, and set the probabilities for that change, but they do not make the change itself. That happens between elections.
