VIZITA FRUCTUOASA A DELEGATIEI ROMANE IN CAMBODIA. UN EXEMPLU DE ACTIVITATE DIPLOMATICA

Anul 2017 a marcat un nou punct de cotitura in relatiile dintre Romania si Regatul Cambodgiei odata cu vizita delegatiei la nivel inalt condusa de Presedintele Institutului de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica Profesor  Dr. Anton Caragea in regatul Cambodgiei.

 

 Presedintele Institutului de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica Profesor Dr. Anton Caragea  adreseaza felicitari creatorului miracolului economic cambodgian: E.S. Primul Ministru Academician  HUN SEN.

 

 

O suita de noi acorduri de cooperare culturala, in domeniul dezvoltarii si al turismului au marcat si au impulsionat relatia bilaterala si au sprijinit Regatul Cambodiei sa atinga un numar record de turisti in 2016 si 2017, totalizand anual peste cinci milioane de vizitatori, un record mondial.

Delegatia romana condusa de Presedintele IRICE Prof.dr. Anton Caragea a participat cu ocazia vizitei si la manifestarile oficiale dedicate capitalei PHNOM PENH alesa drept CAPITALA MONDIALA A CULTURII SI TURISMULUI si alegerii Primului Ministru al Cambodiei drept primul AMBASADOR GLOBAL PENTRU TURISM SI OBIECTIVELE DE DEZVOLTARE GLOBALA.

 

Phnom Penh orasul ce a gazduit festivitatile CAPITALEI MONDIALE A CULTURII SI TURISMULUI si delegatia condusa de Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea, presedintele IRICE.

 

 

Programul vizitei a inclus si un vast si divers program cultural astfel construit incat sa ofere delegatiei conduse de Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea oportunitatea de a descoperii potentialul cultural, de patrimoniu si mostenire istoric fara egal al regatului.

 

Programul de descoperiri si familiarizare a inclus zona de coasta a Cambodiei cu provinciile Kampong Som, Sihanoukville si splendidele insule Koh Rong si Koh Rong Sonleom.

Zona de litoral a Cambodiei este o destinatie unica cuprinzand paduri tropicale, plaje fara egal in lume si un climat echilibrat intregul an fiind un adevarat magnet pentru turism.

 

      Sihanoukville: zona de plaja cea mai curata in intreaga lume!

 

Delegatia presedintelui IRICE a vizitat apoi zona de nord a regatului cuprinzand provinciile pline de monumente culturale Siem Reap si Preah Vihear.

Litoralul Cambodgiei: noua adresa a paradisului!

Au fost vizitate uriasele piramide ale orasului mistic Koh Ker, marturie vie a incredibilei puteri si pasiuni arhitecturale a regelui Jayavarman IV care a lasat marturie un fascinant oras ascuns astazi in jungla din Cambodgia.

Apoi delegatia s-a indreptat spre cel mai mare templu din Indochina, minunea arhitecturala de la Preah Vihear, templu unic prin dimensiunile sale, prin pozitionarea indrazneata in varful unui munte si prin forma unica liniara, neobisnuita pentru templele budiste si hinduiste ale regiunii.

 

 

Koh Ker cea de a 7a minune a lumii!

 

Prea Vihear este o marturie in piatra a spiritului atotcuceritor, al dragostei fata de frumos si a puterii creatoare a poporului khmer a apreciat intr-un interviu la televiziunea cambodgiana, Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea.

 

Preah Vihear: cel mai mare si impresionant templu al Indochinei.

 

Au mai fost vizitate templele de la Beng Melea si apoi o deplasare pe cel mai mare lac de apa dulce din cambodia, Tonle Sap,cunoscut si drept marea interioara a Cambodiei.

Mihai Prundianu, membru al delegatiei romane a apreciat ca este fundamental pentru turisti sa petreaca timp in zonele rurale ale Cambodiei, sa cumpere produse traditionale, sa sprijine comunitatile locale si sa ofere prosperitate micilor intreprinzatori si sa aiba astfel o mai buna intelegere a conditiilor si stilului de viata local.

Tonle Sap: marea interioara a Cambodgiei!

 

Punctul central al vizitei a fost insa descoperirea masivelor si splendidelor temple de la Sambor Prei Kuk, inscrise in 2017 in patrimoniul UNESCO.

 

Sambor Prai Kuk: capitala magica a fabulosului regat  Chenla.

 

Sambor Prei Kuk este cunoscut drept capitala puternicului si bogatului regat Chenla (Zenla in izvoarele chineze) si ofera o imagine clara si astazi a unui oras incredibil de larg si de dezvoltat gazduind zeci de temple si turnuri cu scop religios si expunand un lux si un nivel artistic deosebit.

Orasul ofera vizitatorului un sir impresionant de temple bogat decorate, de turnuri de rugaciune, unice in lume ce rasar din jungla si ofera un dans al pietrei si al zeitatilor ce reprezinta nu doar un precursor al magnificului Angkor de astazi, dar un oras minune in propriul sau drept.

 

Sambor Prei Kuk- inscris pe lista monumentelor protejate UNESCO in 2017

(al treilea obiectiv UNESCO din Cambodgia dupa templele de la Angkor si cele de la  Preah Vihear).

 

Niciun om din lume nu se poate numi ca un om iubitor de cultura si caltorii daca nu a poposit la Sambor Prei Kuk caci aici nu este doar marturia unei puternice civilizatii ce a condus intreaga Indochina, dar si un centru religios de prim ordin unde oameni si zei au construit un oras unic prin putere si magnificienta, a apreciat Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea importanta zonei.

E.S. Presedinte Profesor Dr. Anton Caragea a laudat Regatul Cambodgiei ca un exemplu pentru intreaga lume si un model de dezvoltare si a tinut discursul de nominalizare a E.S. Prim Ministru si Academician HUN SEN ca noul AMBASADOR GLOBAL PENTRU TURISM SI OBIECTIVELE DE DEZVOLTARE DURABLA .

 

 

Un punct central a fost vizita protocolara la E.S. Samdech Akka Moha HUN SEN, Primul Ministru al Regatului Cambodiei, discutiile fiind marcate de un sentiment de profunda amicitie si dorinta de cooperare permanenta partilor.

In aceeasi atmosfera s-a desfasurat si dialogul cu Ministrul Turismului Thong Khon, dialog in care au fost analizate si acceptate noi acorduri de cooperare intre cele doua institutii.

Tot cu aceasta ocazie Academicianul Mircea Constantinescu, membru al delegatiei prezidentiale, a tinut discursul de prezentare a importantei noii CAPITALE MONDIALE A CULTURII SI TURISMULUI-PHNOM PENH.

 

 

Vizita delegatiei la nivel inalt condusa de Prof.dr. Anton Caragea s-a inscris astfel in continuitatea unei relatii diplomatice si de cooperare ce a devenit un adevarat exemplu in regiune si promite noi si noi oportunitati de cooperare si dezvoltare.

DECLARATION FOR GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

FOR

HIS EXCELLENCY SAMDECH AKKA MOHA SENA PADEI TECHO

HUN SEN,

PRIME MINISTER OF KINGDOM OF CAMBODIA

EUROPEAN ACADEMICIAN

Your Excellency Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HUN SEN- Prime Minister of Kingdom of Cambodia,

Your Excellency Mr. Thong Khon – Minister of Tourism,

Esteemed members of Royal Government of Cambodia, members of Parliament of Cambodia,

Distinguished member’s diplomatic corps,

Dear guests,

 All protocol observed,

We are meeting today for a historic moment, the nomination of the newest GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS in the person of H.E. Academician HUN SEN, Prime Minister of Kingdom of Cambodia.

It is not by chance that we met here in Phnom Penh, recently sacred as World Capital of Culture and Tourism as this is absolutely the correct address to find the world newest global ambassador and the voice supporting world-wide peace and development and fostering tourism as a tool for promoting people to people exchanges, peoples diplomacy and deep-rooted understanding and dialogue.

 

It is absolutely befitting that Cambodia will help the international community to have a voice in development and peace and that Khmer people give us the perfect example in building a new world, a better one.

 

It is not the first time that the world is looking to Cambodia for leadership and a path to glory and growth.

Fourteen centuries ago the world looked in awe to Khmer Empire for guidance, for a world example of civilization.

Angkor become a university for all the people of Asia and Indochina, from here spring up the giant temples, the powerful legends about daring goods protecting humanity, here was carved the delicate art of dance that will charm and enticed the world and become known across the ages as the Khmer civilization and made Cambodia to act as a beckon of culture and light to the world.

Prime Minister Hun Sen is a son of this proud history and in my long discussions with him I always appreciated his interest and desire in keeping alive the ancient cultural traditions and protecting the world heritage sites of Cambodia ( I will remember you all his determination in liberating the ancient temple of Preah Vihear and restoring it to The Kingdom of Cambodia patrimony without shedding a drop of blood, only by diplomatic skills and passion).

His love for the people of Cambodia, his tireless dedication for their well being made Cambodia what it is today: a center of world economic development with an annual growth rate of  7%, the most attractive market for investors, the most rapid job creator economy in the region and a country that has become a leader in tourism development.

Phnom Penh has been transformed from the ghost city of 1979 into the host of  World Economic Forum for 2017 and elevated to the status of World Capital of Culture and Tourism.

A country than in 1979 has received zero tourists was transformed into the Kingdom of Wonder, World Best Tourist Destination of today, a welcoming home to more than 5 million travelers today.

If this is not an example in tourism development, then I don’t know what qualifies for one.

 

Official presentation to the world of the new GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

Cambodia is clearly showing us that in the XXI century what is important is not the size of the territory or the populace, but the will, skill and determination to contribute to the world development.

 

What is more important and maybe sometimes the people of Cambodia may overlook, captured by the unimaginable transformation in their life’s, is that Prime Minister Hun SEN has given them more than national pride, or independence or growth or a stable job or has helped millions to be lifted out of poverty.

 

Yes he did all that.. but he did something more for the people of Cambodia, he gives them a sense of direction, of stability in a troubled world, he gives them the conscience that every day will be a better one, that every day things will be done better and more diligent, in a word he gave to the people of Cambodia the diamond of HOPE.

This is what we need in the world of today from a GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS: to help us restore hope to the world.

Hope that the reconstruction is possible.

There are so many to be reconstructed in the world of today, so many nations plagued by wars, terrorism and destruction or plagued by climate change-related disasters need advice and guidance.

And who knows better to rebuild that Prime Minister Hun Sen?

I will give you some figures to understand something about the man who has taken Cambodia from zero to hero: from 2 billion GDP in 1979 to 54 USD billions today, from 50 USD per capita to 3.488 USD today, from zero foreign investments to 1,7 billion investment`s yearly.

 

From cities reduced to rubble by US bombardments and millions of peoples without home or hope, from abandoned temples and hamlets all needed to be rebuilt, to be restored in the country and with no help, the government led by Prime Minister Hun Sen created this miracle, the Cambodian miracle.

Having the shining example of Cambodia of today before our eyes these are the best qualification description and credential for a future GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

Cambodia of today, a country that is rapidly modernizing, that has become a center of encounter and dialogue for all the people for the world, that was transformed in an example of development and that is generously opening his gates for all the nations in search of cultural enlightenment, historical research and patrimony exploration.

PHNOM  PENH is today a center for world diplomacy, where crises are settled and statesman’s are finding new ways for cooperation, a center of innovation and inventivity, a place where tradition and new, culture and technology are blending in a perfect way.

This is the true calling card for a leader for XXI century, for a GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS, for a man for whom development goals are not just a piece of paper or words to ring hollow, but are a lifetime work, are part and parcel of his existence and activity.

This year in local democratic and free elections, the people of Cambodia have the perfect occasion to pass judgment and express support to Prime Minister Hun Sen vision and they did this admirably, as a testimony of their indelible trust in his foresight.

Now we have the privileged and the honor of voting for Prime Minister Hun Sen, the man who created a free and democratic Cambodia, a country where all are equal under the sun of Angkor and where hope still survives.

Now we have entrusted him with the highest honor that we can give: to be our voice, to represent humanity aspirations for a better world, to be our world ambassador, leader and creator of visionary policies.

I must emphasize that: the recognition as GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS is addressed also to the people of Cambodia.

H.E Prime Minister HUN SEN is the democratically elected voice of the people of Cambodia and he represents the will of the Cambodian people, the will of unity, his industriousness, his energy in building a better and powerful and independent Cambodia, this is the marvelous people of Cambodia that we honor today.

 

Last year, I was having a special feeling when I remarked that the world needs Academician HUN SEN exertions and contribution, well this year this appeal becomes more real than ever.

In a recent declaration, Prime Minister Hun Sen said he is contemplating staying in the service of his nation for at least ten more years.

Well, we need him for at least twenty more, to steer us on the path of development goals completion and fruition and to help us build a better world, a world of peace and understanding, a world of hope.

 Your Excellency, Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Prime Minister HUN SEN we entrust you with the responsibility of GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS reminding you our commitments: to support humanity, to leave no one behind and no one excluded, to build a better world for us all.

These are the bonds that unite us, give form to our aspirations, to our belongings, and this is the language of humanism and human dignity, the language of an AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

Prime Minister HUN SEN the world recognized you as THE NEW GLOBAL AMBASSADOR FOR TOURISM AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

May you lead the world in the right direction!
