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.

AVOID TRAVEL TO MAURITIUS AND SRI LANKA (TRAVEL ADVISORY)

Most of countries has upgraded their travel advisory telling their citizens  to avoid non-essential travel to Sri Lanka following the deadly bombings in that country on Easter Sunday.

 

Mauritius is also sidelined as the country is traversing a protracted political crisis and is presenting a large array of risks from terrorism and indiscriminate attacks, to day light robbery, violence, crimes, sexual offences, drugs related offences, mugging, pick-pocketing and natural disasters prone area etc.

The governments are noting the decision to travel is your own choice, and adds your personal safety is also your responsibility.

 

The attacks in Sri Lanka where a sober reminder on the need for tourists to heed the warnings of travel advisories and avoid traveling to dangers spots

 

 

 

More than 350 people were killed on April 21st when three churches and three luxury hotels were attacked in the greater Colombo area of Sri Lanka.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but authorities have said they remain unsure of its involvement.

The Canadian government for example says the situation remains volatile, and warns other attacks could take place.

For those living in or currently visiting Sri Lanka, the Government of Canada is urging people to avoid the areas impacted by the recent attacks, to remain extremely cautious, and to limit their movements as much as they can.

Sri Lankan authorities have declared a state of emergency, and a curfew had been imposed.

Dozens of people have been arrested so far in connection with the attacks.

Traveling to far flung and risky places like Mauritius and Sri Lanka makes necessary to take fallowing precautions and you are also advised to leave the areas immediately:

 

  • remain vigilant, keep up to date with developments and follow the advice of local security authorities and hotel security staff;

  • keep a low profile, avoid crowded public places, large gatherings (including religious gatherings and places of worship) and any demonstrations. All of the attacks on 21 April were carried out either in places of worship or in places where foreign visitors were affected. Any further attacks may be targeted against similar locations;

    avoid travelling during periods of curfew (other than to/from the airport – see below);

  • keep in touch with family and friends, ensuring they are aware of any plans you may have.

 

A list of the most recent crimes, unlawful activities and menaces taking place in Mauritius is available here on the UK government travel advisories dedicated site.

BOEING 737 MAX MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO FLY AGAIN SAY`S FORMER US PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

In a powerful open letter to Boeing executives, former US Presidential hopeful Ralph Nader makes a compelling case for BOEING 737 MAX model to be banned forever as the airplane is inherently faulty.

 

 

This is all that was left from the ill-fated BOEING 737 MAX and his crew and passengers bound for Nairobi-Kenya.

 

The letter comes in the light of the preliminary report on the terrible Ethiopian Airlines and Lion Air crashes that took the life of 346 innocent passengers and crew members.

Ralph Nader does not mince his words on the responsibility inherent with Boeing actions:

Step by step, Boeing’s criminal negligence, driven by a race to make profits, worsened.

Before and after the fatal crashes, Boeing did not reveal, did not warn, did not train, and did not address the basic defective aerodynamic design. It gagged everyone that it could. Boeing still insists that the 737 Max is safe and is building two a day, while pushing to end the grounding.” 

The law suits had already started with a wrongful death case that was filed against Boeing on the same day that a preliminary investigation into last month’s Ethiopian Airlines crash revealed damning details about the aircraft manufacturer and raised new questions about whether it gave pilots proper instructions for navigating new software.

The findings were released Thursday in Ethiopia, based on the analysis of a team of 18 investigators, less than a month after the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash killed all 157 people on board.

The report found similarities in the technical issues experienced by pilots on both the Ethiopian Airlines flight and October’s Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610, which also crashed just minutes after takeoff, killing all 189 people on board.

Both flights were on a Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

What of the near future? ask Ralph Nader.

“Airline passengers should organize a consumer boycott of the Boeing 737 Max 8 to avoid having to fly on these planes in the coming decade.

Once Boeing realizes that this brand has a deep marketing stigma, it may move more quickly to the drawing boards, so as to not alienate airline carriers”.

 

Latest analysis of the inherent problems that are making  Boeing 737 Max 8 an unsafe airplane that no amount of software upgrading can fix can be accessed here:

GROWING CALLS FOR BOEING 737 MAX TO BE SCRAPED AS CHINA SUSPENDS THE AIRCRAFT CERTIFICATION

Pressure grows of Boeing to withdraw from production and flight the suspicious 737 MAX aircraft after a string of fatal crashes that claimed the life of more than 300 people revealed essential flaws in the aircraft.

 

Boeing 737 MAX the aircraft involved in two air-crash disasters should be seriously scrutinized before ever to be left to take passengers.

 

China is taking the lead in order to insure air safety for his citizens and after being the first nation to ground all  Boeing 737 MAX is taking another step further and is  suspended the certificate of airworthiness.

 

China suspended the certificate of airworthiness for Boeing Co.’s 737 Max jet, saying it needs to review a proposed modification before determining whether the plane is safe to fly after two recent crashes.

The move raises the possibility of the Max being kept out of skies should authorities deem Boeing’s fix for plane-control software linked to the disasters inadequate.

Earlier Chinese authorities grounded the country’s fleet of Max planes on March 11, a day after an Ethiopian Airlines flight plunged to the ground by systemic failure.

The latest decision was taken in light of the uncertainty surrounding the model and an anti-stall system that’s the focus of a probe into the loss of the Ethiopian Airlines plane, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China.

In addition to China, officials in Canada and the European Union have signaled that they intend to independently review changes to the Boeing planes before restoring flights.

The theme is destined not only to enliven tourism during 2019 but also to emphasize that tourism is inextricably linked with historical legacy.

History is the main attraction that is creating tourism demand and visitors expectation is linked with the existence of historical and cultural heritage.

Tourism must also be organized in such a manner to not impede conservation efforts, to support raising awareness on historical monuments and to help to acquire the financial support necessary for historical preservation activities.

Tourism and history are inseparable, are growing from the same tree: the sapling  of culture and civilization.

 

History is the root of tourism development and tourism must feed and nurture historical preservation as leaves are feeding the tree said Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.
