More than 87,000 respondents took part and voted in all categories of the 7th Crystal Magnifying Glass survey.
“I am very glad that also an internet project of state administration proved to be useful, forward looking and popular. We would like to thank to all voters and web visitors. We regard your interest as appreciation of our work and we value it,” Jindřich Pokora, director of the Control, Laboratories and Certification Department of CAFIA and one of the project initiators, said on the ceremonial evening.
