EUROPEAN COUNCIL ON TOURISM AND TRADE HAS CREATED 100.000 JOBS IN THE LAST YEARS

Building on a successful cooperation on last year’s Europe Day, the European Tourism Academy supported the EUROPEAN COUNCIL ON TOURISM AND TRADE (ECTT)  to organize the Europe Day on Tuesday , 9 May 2017.

                                             

The reception was attended by over 1000 people from including prominent guests such as government representatives, diplomatic corps in Bucharest, business leaders, academia, and the media.

The welcoming speech was delivered by European Council on Tourism and Trade President-Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.   

Honourable Ministers,

Honourable Members of Parliament,

Excellencies, Members of the Diplomatic Corps,

Colleagues, fellow Europeans and friends of Europe,

Ladies and gentlemen,

Namaste, Salam Alaykum, Good evening, Bonsoir, and a very warm welcome to you all to the 2017 Europe Day celebrations.

First, I would like to express my gratitude to Academicians Mircea Constantinescu and Ionut Costea, Directors of EUROPEAN TOURISM ACADEMY, for kindly agreeing to make available this splendid hall for today’s gathering.

We thought that this year it would be great to bring Europe closer to academicians and professionals and leaders of all walks of life, and to hold our celebrations in this excellent establishment.

Thank you very much to everyone who has worked so hard to make this happen.

Today, 9 May, is Europe Day.

 On this day in 1950 Robert Schuman, the French Foreign Minister, called on the nations of Europe to unite and make war on our continent unthinkable.

His message of peace and unity is as relevant as ever.

 The dreams of our founding fathers have become a reality, and Europeans live together in peace and prosperity, bound together by principles of democracy and human rights.

Yet, as anyone who follows international news knows, the European Union faces considerable challenges, and I do not want to gloss over these.

But despite all our difficulties the Europe represents the most successful process of regional integration, and remains the richest continent in the world.

In no other place is there so much freedom – freedom to speak our mind, freedom to move, freedom to pray and not to pray, freedom to love, freedom to vote and freedom to choose our own destiny.

Everywhere in the world Europe is a major trading partner, a major investor and we are proudly launching here BEST OF EUROPE/BEST OF WORLD program.

Climate change is another example of Europe prowess and a dear subject to myself as Ambassador for World Protected Areas .

On 22 April 2016, 175 countries signed the Paris Agreement in New York. Fifteen countries deposited their instruments of ratification on the same day sending a signal to the international community on the paramount importance of the implementation of the Agreement.

Our Ambassador office is committed to continue to work closely with all the nations on climate change, not only alongside it in international negotiations, but also as a key partner – providing support for mitigation and adjusting, and on the implementation of the Paris Agreement – the next big challenge.

Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen,

I want to welcome you this evening not only to the Europe Day Reception, but also to our exhibition showcasing our engagement in tourism, trade and development across the world.

With WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION and WORLD CAPITAL OF CULTURE AND TOURISM programs we succeeded in the last ten years to bring over 6 billion euro investments in tourism, development and growth sector in Africa and Asia and we created more than 100.000 jobs in tertiary sectors of all the countries that have being supported by EUROPEAN COUNCIL ON TOURISM AND TRADE and EUROPEAN TOURISM ACADEMY programs.

 I would like to thank all our development implementing partners for their contributions to the exhibition and for their efforts.

I hope that everyone will take time to discover the breadth and depth of the EUROPEAN COUNCIL ON TOURISM AND TRADE co-operation with developing world.

I would like to express my gratitude in particular to key partners of ours in this day, as DALI HAUTE PARFUMERIE who offered you not only wonderful gifts but provided you with a symbol of what Europe stand`s for culture like Salvador Dali works and the joy of living embodied by wonderful perfumes and also a word of gratitude to our European Diplomatic Wine`s partners like HOUSE OF PANCIU who unveiled for you the best European sparkling wines and HOUSE OF WINES COTNARI who had offered you the gift of incredible European wines.

A word of gratitude to the 23 masters of pastry and cakes, who created the incredible cakes that we will taste tonight.

I will no longer stay between you and the incredible cake awaiting us!

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Happy Europe Day!

Bbahut Dhanyawad, Shukran, Merci beaucoup, Thank you, Danke.”

​It gives me a special pleasure to greet the Paris Climate Conference COP21.

This meeting come at a critical moment.  This is the time for world leaders meeting in Paris to forge a general and humanity level response to the climate change peril.

Already by previous commitments the national governments have agreed to the goal of limiting global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius.
The climate action plans – the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions – submitted so far bend the global emissions curve downward, but there is still much effort demanded and as soon as possible.

The transformation of the world’s energy systems is crucial for world natural protected areas and natural parks by this avoiding the worst consequences of climate change and setting the world on a sustainable development pathway.

It os our shared duty as representatives of the people and humanity to foster the transformation of world energy systems in to cleaner, lower-carbon sources, and to ensure the decarbonization of the world’s energy systems by the end of the century.

Your efforts as delegates to COP 21 will manifest themself by  implementing the recently adopted 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

European Council on Tourism and Trade has saluted this  agenda as a roadmap to end global poverty – including energy poverty – and to help build a life of dignity for all.
This is our committment and obligation for the generations to come.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that we are supporting are reflecting the importance of sustainable energy for societies, economies and human world.
SDG 17 are calling to “ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all” by 2030.

The Agenda that European Council on Tourism and Trade works to promote, recognizes the close links between energy and the other SDGs, including the goal on climate change.

I salute your exertions to build a safer, more equitable and prosperous future for all.
Please accept my best wishes for a successful Paris COP 21 conference !

COP21-PARIS CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE CLOSING MESSAGE

The Office of IRICE President release a special communique on the occasion of the successful closing of COP21 Paris Climate Conference.

​It gives me a special pleasure to greet the results of the Paris Climate Conference COP21.

The Paris Agreement has succeed in providing the framework for accelerating the global transition to low-carbon climate –resilient economies. As the SG of United Nations Mr. Ban Ki-moon rightly stated “We are the first generation that can end poverty. We are also the last generation that can slow global warming before it is too late.”

We should not miss this opportunity.

The Paris conference was a historic opportunity to accelerate the shift to a low carbon, climate-resilient global economy.

People around the world are looking to their leaders for a signal that they are ready and willing to take decisive action to tackle climate change.

I launch an appeal  to those that support a strong Paris deal to take every opportunity to speak out and make their position clear.

Now, of extremly importance is the role to be played by the Civil society in raising awareness among the public and putting pressure on governments to show leadership and to ask for accountability rules to give stakeholders confidence that countries will deliver on their commitments.

 As well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the new agreement is also addresing adaptation to the impacts of climate change and the mobilisation of finance for climate action from a variety of public and private sources.

The climate action plans – the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions – submitted so far bend the global emissions curve downward, but there is still much effort demanded and as soon as possible.

The transformation of the world’s energy systems is crucial for world natural protected areas and natural parks by this avoiding the worst consequences of climate change and setting the world on a sustainable development pathway.

It os our shared duty as representatives of the people and humanity to foster the transformation of world energy systems in to cleaner, lower-carbon sources, and to ensure the decarbonization of the world’s energy systems by the end of the century.
