In cuvantul sau de deschidere, prof.dr.Anton Caragea, Directorul Institutului de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica,  a subliniat ca Expozitia DUBAI-CAPITALA EXPOZITIEI MONDIALE 2020 este destinata a exprima sprijinul oficial al Parlamentului si Guvernului Romaniei pentru relatia strategica Romania-Emiratele Arabe Unite, o relatie fundamentala pentru ambele natiuni.

Dubai-ul trebuie sa fie gazda EXPOZITIEI MONDIALE din 2020, deoarece doar anul trecut peste 51 de milioane de pasageri au trecut prin tranzit in Dubai,iar mai mult de 10 milioane au ales orasul pentru o sedere indelungata. In plus Dubai-ul gazduieste mai mult de 200 de evenimente de rasunet international anual si este un oras primitor pentru mai mult de 200 de nationalitati.

Dubai-ul este orasul din zona Golfului Arabic ce cunoaste cea mai rapida crestere demografica si economica, este simbolul schimbarii geopolitice ce pune Asia in centrul dezvoltarii economice si politice mondiale si beneficiaza de un impresionant spatiu pentru EXPOZITIA MONDIALA din 2020 si reprezinta centrul natural pentru comertul intre Asia-Africa , Europa si America de Sud via Africa, pe ceea ce este cunoscut sub numele de Noul Drum al Matasii in secolul XXI.

Intre Romania si Emiratele Arabe Unite exista o lunga traditie, de peste 25 de ani de cooperare diplomatica si aplicarea deciziei, demna de mentionat de a isi sustine reciproc candidaturile si toate initiativele in plan international si in organismele internationale.

Ca atare decizia Romaniei de a sprijini candidatura orasului Dubai pentru EXPO 2020 a fost o decizie naturala, inscrisa in cadrul acordurilor reciproce si parte a lungii traditii de colaborare diplomatica intre cele doua tari….votul de sprijin pentru orasul Dubai ca organizator al EXPOZITIEI MONDIALE din 2020 vine in continuarea acestei decizii.

Ne aflam aici uniti in sprijinul pentru Emiratele Arabe Unite, partenerul nostru strategic in zona Golfului Arabic, putere si opozitie laolalta, sprijinind interesul national romanesc de cooperare cu Emiratele Arabe Unite.

In final doresc sa urez mult succes in misiunea de a apropia cele doua tari , Excelentei Sale-domnului Yacoub Yousif Al Hosani, Ambasador al Emiratelor Arabe Unite  in Romania şi să apreciez  aportul domnului prof. univ. dr. Anton Caragea, directorul Institutului de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica la realizarea acestei deosebite manifestari si expozitii″.

In discursul fostului presedinte al Romaniei-Emil Constantinescu se precizeaza: ″cu aceste argumente nu este o surpriza pentru nimeni ca Dubai-ul a castigat sustinerea Romaniei, o alegere naturala deoarece  Romania este interesata de toate cele trei mari obiective pe care Expozitia Dubai si le-a propus : dezvoltarea durabila, economisirea energiei si a apelor, sprijinirea mobilitatii oamenilor, bunurilor si ideilor in ceea ce Dubai-ul numeste : Noul Drum al Matasii al secolului XXI si descoperirea de noi oportunitati economice si noi modele de dezvoltare.

Ca atare, nu pot decat sa felicit Guvernul si Parlamentul Romaniei pentru  decizia de a sprijinii Dubai-ul in atingerea ambitioaselor sale obiective pentru Expozitia Mondiala, sa felicit Ambasada Emiratelor Arabe Unite pentru succesul obtinut, si sa va invit sa vedeti aceasta frumoasa Expozitie gazduita de Parlament.
