DIPLOMATS TO VISIT VRANCEA AND DOMENIILE PANCIU IN THE FRAMEWORK OF DISCOVER ROMANIA 2019 TRIP

Vrancea County will be at the center, for the first time ever, of THE DISCOVER ROMANIA 2019 summer trip of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation (IRICE).

DISCOVER ROMANIA is a programme destined to acquaint diplomats and international friends of Romania with the country historical patrimony and leisure opportunities and destinations.

 

HOTELUL DOMENIILE PANCIU

A welcoming home away from home for the participants of 2019 DIPLOMATIC TRIP: The DOMENIILE PANCIU HOTEL.

 

 

The destination selection was made keeping in balance the growing international fame of the Vrancea county, the breathtaking beauty of the region and the celebrations destined to underline, during 2019, the YEAR OF GREATER ROMANIA.

 

The Summer 2019 Diplomatic trip will take place from 12 July to 15th July and will be dedicated as always to diplomats and foreign friends and partners of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation of Romania and will be carved as an opportunity and invitation to discover VRANCEA regional heritage, history, culture, hospitality and cuisine treasures.

 

 

In 2018 the diplomats visited the magic land of Danube Delta. In 2019 the will adventure into the center of Romania, the Vrancea County.  

 

 

Vrancea is still an unspoiled land offering a balanced climate all year round, spectacular scenery, celebrated religious hot-spots like : Buluc Monastery (build by Caragea boyars in XVII century), Recea Monastery from Dumbraveni or Musunoaiele Church from Fitionesti, the mineral waters of Soveja used for medical therapy and the line up of monuments of Focsani, Marasti and Marasesti built after First World War to commemorate the rebirth of Romania after the first global conflagration.

 

The famous and picturesque Buluc Monastery (build by Caragea boyars in XVII century).

 

All these cultural and historical highlights can be accessed in day time trips from the host and center of our discovery adventure in Vrancea: The DOMENIILE PANCIU HOTEL.

 

Exactly this was another argument in choosing Vrancea for the discovery trip: the opening of an extraordinary resort and hospitality complex in the area: DOMENIILE PANCIU HOTEL, this is providing us with the high luxury base for our trips in the region mentioned Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

 

The main battlefields of the First World War when Romanian army defeated the German attackers and saved the nation independence are also to be discovered on Vrancea County.

A string of monuments erected between 1918-1938 are crowning the land of Vrancea.  

 

This hospitality complex is to become the gravity center of our activities, to discover Vrancea and also our night base for wonderful meals and recuperation after travel.

At the heart of this sensibilization campaign aimed at informing Romanian public with regards to the extraordinary tourism potential of the Vrancea is Mr. Daniel Guzu, the General Director of DOMENIILE PANCIU and an avid and ardent promoter of the Vrancea County beauties and potential, and determined in sharing them with the world.

 

 

 

Mr. Daniel Guzu, the creator of DOMENIILE PANCIU brand, congratulated by diplomats on the venue of 2018 International Wine Fair of Bucharest.

 

 

The diplomat’s program was coined, with the help of HOTEL DOMENIILE PANCIU owner and Director, Mr. Daniel Guzu, a man addicted to Vrancea and passionate to share his knowledge of this legendary county.

 

We hope that this diplomatic trip to Vrancea will be a new success of the DISCOVERY ROMANIA program, started in 2008 by The Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation and will be followed this autumn by a discovery trip to another magic land: Maramures, stated Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

 

 

Vrancea: a place of unique beauty and unparalleled sceneries.

PRESIDENT ANTON CARAGEA ANNOUNCES HIS PRIORITIES AS THE HEAD OF ELECTION OBSERVATION TEAM IN CAMBODIA 2018

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea, Head of International Observers Team for Cambodia 2018 Elections, launched the mission at a press conference on 4 July, stressing the importance of Cambodia’s parliamentary elections for the country’s stability.

On this occasion the official launch of the website of Election Observation Mission for Cambodia has taken place.

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea explained all that World Elections  Monitors Organization (WEMO) Observation Missions use a common methodology underpinned by the principles of impartiality, objectivity, independence and non-interference. ‘’International Election Observation Missions are responsible for their own conclusions and do not receive instructions neither from the European institutions nor by member states’ governments.’’.

The Head of International Observers Team detailed the long-term monitoring methodology.

The election observation mission for the Kingdom of Cambodia 2018 will cover the political campaign, pre-election preparations, election day – polling, counting and tabulation of results – and the complaints and appeals process as well as the announcement of results.

This will include a thorough analysis of the legal framework, the work of the election administration, campaign activities, the conduct of the media in covering the elections, and the mechanisms for electoral disputes.

The mission will meet election stakeholders, including government officials, election administration bodies, candidates and representatives from political parties, members of civil society and the media, the judiciary, amongst others.

Shortly after election day, the mission will issue a statement containing its preliminary findings.

A final report, including a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of the electoral process and with possible recommendations for future elections, will be released several weeks later announced Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

How do you make an observation mission?

 Election observation gives the opportunity to assess an electoral process according to international standards. The members of World Electors Monitors Organization (WEMO) are leading global actors in providing technical electoral assistance complementary to election observation.

This dual form of election support constitutes a significant contribution to the promotion of governance and development objectives.

What is an observation mission?

An observation mission assesses all aspects of the electoral process, its constitutional and legal framework, the delimitation of constituencies, the registration of voters and candidates, the training of election staff, voter education, media coverage, the campaign and the preparations for election day, as well as the appeals process.

 

On election day, observers visit pooling stations in order to observe the opening, voting, counting and aggregation of results.

What are the principles of an electoral monitoring mission?

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!
