On the occasion of the 20th anniversary on 2 August 2021, a 2-metre Buddy Bear was unveiled at a small surprise party as a symbol of strength and solidarity, which was presented to the management of ANES Bauausführungen Berlin GmbH by requested partners as a gift of gratitude and appreciation for the valuable years of cooperation. The symbolism of this sculpture embodies that which has made ANES grow over the last 20 years and it is therefore those proud employees who have found their place here in the name on this Buddy Bear as a symbol of solidarity.
The Surprise moderators, Mr. Baeskow and Mr. Steinkrauss, led through the programme and held the laudatory speech for the jubilarians and emphasised the “WE” feeling in each employee.
With the words like “We are the model to dispel prejudice against xenophobia. Our community functions with 288 individualists who speak 18 languages.” Christian Rickerts, State Secretary for Economic Affairs, Energy and Operations, gave the laudatory speech at the award ceremony of the competition in category A for companies with more than 30 employees to ANES Bauausführungen Berlin GmbH.
The prize was offered by Ramona Pop, Senator for Economy, Energy and Companies. At the award ceremony in the Rotes Rathaus, Christian Rickerts, State Secretary for Economic Affairs, Energy and Operations, went on to say: “We are delighted that we are awarding the prize for the second time and that the number of applications and nominations has increased further. The large number and the multifaceted nature impressively reflect Berlin’s economy, which is also so successful thanks to entrepreneurs with a migration background.”
During the festive award ceremony, the winners were honored for their economic achievements in the state of Berlin against the backdrop of their migration background. The winners, as well as the numerous other companies that applied for the award, are representative of the tens of thousands of people with a migration background who contribute to the prosperity of the state through their start-ups and years of existence on the market and stand as good examples of the migrant economy.
The special importance of migrants for the German economy was also emphasized by Prof. Marcel Fratzscher in the keynote speech given at the award ceremony.
