60 COUNTRIES HAVE SIGNED UP FOR CARACAS PROCLAMATION REJECTING ANY ATTACK ON VENEZUELA

The national and international participants of the CONFERENCE TODOS SOMOS VENEZUELA ( WE ARE ALL VENEZUELA), gathered in working groups on September 16th and in plenary on September 17th, 2017, and after an open and frank discussion, agreed to develop the following Action Plan to strengthen solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution and to promote the emancipatory struggles of the peoples.

GLOBAL DIALOGUE FOR PEACE, SOVEREIGNTY AND BOLIVARIAN DEMOCRACY

Caracas, September 16th – 19th, 2017

Representatives from 60 countries have signed up to the CARACAS PROCLAMATION

CARACAS PROCLAMATION

We, the representatives of political, social, religious and trade union organizations and the personalities and intellectuals from 60 countries of the world have gathered in Caracas from September 16th to September 19th, 2017, in the framework of the World Conference “Todos Somos Venezuela: Dialogue for Peace, Sovereignty and Bolivarian Democracy”.

We firmly support the people and government of Venezuela in the face of the US imperialism attacks, which every day aggravates its destabilizing actions against the Bolivarian Homeland. These actions have reached their most dramatic expression in the fascist violence unleashed between the months of April and July of this year, which left the unfortunate balance of 115 dead citizens, thousands of injured, generalized damages and psychological aggression against the entire Venezuelan people.

Today, the political aggression of the US imperialism is carried out personally by US President Donald Trump, who not only threatens to use his military forces against Venezuela but also leads a rarely seen diplomatic siege from the Organization of American States (OAS) with the participation of some governments of the region in order to undermine the strength of the Bolivarian democracy.

At the same time, he formalizes, through an Executive Order, the implementation of the financial blockade that had already been applied “to choke the Venezuelan economy.”

The imperialist aggression against the Bolivarian Revolution is a flagrant violation of the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace endorsed by the presidents of all the countries of the region during the Second Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) held in Havana in January 2014, which defends the sovereign right of each country to determine its own destiny without foreign interference.

The administration of President Donald Trump, along with prominent spokesmen of the Venezuelan anti-nationalist opposition, deploys a plan aimed at destabilizing the State institutions through a set of maneuvers that were unveiled and defeated thanks to a political decision of great significance based on the philosophical thinking of Commander Hugo Chavez, historical leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, as it was the election, establishment and setting up of the National Constituent Assembly.

Through the Constituent Assembly, the Venezuelan people inaugurates a new historical moment ratifying and deepening the foundations of the social, democratic State of law and justice enshrined in the Bolivarian Constitution of 1999. At the same time, peace was reached in a clear demonstration of the failure of the extreme right-wing forces that carried out the horror of the generalized violence.

We, the representatives of political, social, religious and trade union organizations and the personalities and intellectuals attending this World Conference “Todos Somos Venezuela: Dialogue for Peace, Sovereignty and Bolivarian Democracy” are firmly convinced of the importance of the political dialogue promoted by President Nicolas Maduro, with its most recent meeting held in the Dominican Republic by representatives of the Bolivarian Government and those of the so-called Mesa de la Unidad Democrática (Opposition Coalition’s Parties), an alliance that brings together all sectors of the Venezuelan opposition. Hence, we strongly support the dialogue proposal promoted by the Bolivarian Government.

 

 

Surrounded by one million Venezuelans President Nicolas Maduro raises his voice: No one should issue threats to Venezuela!

 

 

Quite the contrary to the statements made by extreme right-wing sectors in different parts of the world with the support of the large transnational corporations of disinformation, we emphasize that the electoral and democratic agenda continues. In Venezuela, in a few weeks, there will be regional elections, and the municipal and presidential elections will be held in 2018, as well as the referendum that will confirm or not the new constitutional text drafted by the National Constituent Assembly. In what other country of the world can a democratic practice of such dimension be found?

Hence, we condemn the despicable lies, fake news and distortions about Venezuelan reality as the main strategy to discredit the Bolivarian Revolution and the legitimate government of President Nicolas Maduro.

We also support the efforts of the government and the people of Venezuela to overcome the serious problems arising from the economic warfare conducted from the highest levels of the US government.

Our commitment to peace, sovereignty and the Bolivarian democracy is closely linked to the development of a broad and permanent conference of solidarity in each country, promoted by every political, social, religious and trade union organization of democratic nature that participates in this Conference.

The defense of the Bolivarian Revolution is an unavoidable duty of the peoples of Latin America, the Caribbean and the world. This is based on the understanding that in Venezuela, the right to sovereignty, independence, self-determination and integration of our peoples is defended.

Using the words of Jose Marti, with the defense of the independence of Venezuela we will prevent the United States from falling, with an even greater force, upon our American lands.

PRESIDENT NICOLAS MADURO: THE ARCHITECT OF BOLIVARIAN DIPLOMACY! AN AUTHENTIC DIPLOMACY OF PEACE!

President Nicolas Maduro has just return to Caracas after a tour of Kazakhstan, Algeria, Middle East ( having meetings with leaders of Turkey, Iran, Kazakhstan,Russia and Algeria) and from 16 to 17 September 2017 will host the WORLD CONFERENCE: WE ARE ALL VENEZUELA. DIALOG FOR PEACE, SOVEREIGNTY AND BOLIVARIAN DEMOCRACY.

 

Venezuelan capital-Caracas will host the leaders interested in world democratic dialogue and values in a two days long global dialogue.

 

In less than a week the Bolivarian revolution leader has succeeded in linking Venezuela with the main petrol exporting countries, managed to create a bridge of friendship between Latin America and Central Asia and will play host to world leaders and democratic movement heads garnering not only to express support for Venezuela but also to enact the Bolivarian diplomacy, the concept carved out and placed at the fore by the Venezuelan president.

 

The call to the WORLD CONFERENCE: WE ARE ALL VENEZUELA. DIALOG FOR PEACE, SOVEREIGNTY AND BOLIVARIAN DEMOCRACY! is the most complete and exhaustive description of the main aims of Bolivarian diplomacy and must be regarded as a crux in the development of a multipolar world, a world of democracy and peace.

 

In order to better understand this call for global peace, launched with the help and supervision of President Nicolas Maduro we are presenting in full the text of the message to the peoples of the world:

 

 Under President Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela has become one of the leaders of the democratic world.

 

MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD

FOR PEACE, SOVEREIGNTY AND DEMOCRACY IN VENEZUELA

We, citizens of the world, workers, members of social movements, civil rights organizations and political parties, academics, intellectuals and creators, denounce before humanity the international conspiracy led by the Government of Donald Trump against the people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, its Government and its legitimate authorities.

Under a speech of racial supremacy, intolerance and warmongering, which remind us of the darkest times of fascism, the Government of Donald Trump wages a political, diplomatic, economic and media aggression, including the military option, to undermine Venezuelan democracy, to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro and to establish a government that serves the interests of
Washington.

The neocolonial restoration process in Venezuela seeks to deprive the Venezuelan people from its sovereignty and return to the global powers control over the immense riches and resources of the country.

This conspiracy against a sovereign country, which openly violates international law, makes progress thanks to the full support of the great media transnational companies, and the shameful support of neoliberal and antigrassroots governments.

Last April, a US financed political violence campaign began – through the Venezuelan opposition – and was presented to the world as civil and pacific protests. In addition to this propaganda, a smear campaign was also launched against the Venezuelan democracy before the world public opinion, by projecting Venezuela’s government as a dictatorship that violates human rights and drives the country into an alleged deep humanitarian crisis.

Truth is that the only purpose of this campaign is to overthrow the legitimate Government of Venezuela by spreading death, chaos and violence, following the style of the “Color Revolutions”. Since then, more than a hundred people have died and more than two thousand people have been wounded.

The political violence promoted by Washington has caused significant material damage and suffering to the Venezuelan people.
The latest manifestation of this plot is the discredit of the elections held on July 30th, in which eight millions of Venezuelans elected a National Constituent Assembly.

Thanks to the National Constituent Assembly election, the Venezuelan people defeated violence in the streets and restored peace. From July 30th, a process of stabilization of civil and political life has begun through the participation of all the political parties in the next regional elections for governors to be held in October.
Due to the latest threat of military force by Donald Trump and the financial blockade imposed on Venezuela, the supremacist government of Washington
has intensified the conflict, and has publicly expressed its intention to “choke” the Venezuelan economy.

We reject the escalating aggressions against Venezuela by the US administration.

Venezuela is a nation that has been building people’s democracy in a peaceful manner for 18 years now.

The Bolivarian democracy has returned the control of natural resources to the country, has redistributed wealth in favor of the working class and the humble sectors of society, and has guaranteed the social rights of all its population.

 

 

President Nicolas Maduro is welcomed around the world as a messenger of peace, democracy and dialogue.

 

Venezuela social achievements in the field of education, health care, social protection, social security universalization and indigenous communities’ rights have proven that it is possible to make democracy more democratic.

Its ecosocialist approach challenges those who impose the plundering of common goods of humanity by transnational elites.
Venezuela does not represent a threat to any country in the world. Since its independence, more than 200 years ago, it has never engaged in a military conflict, nor has it ever participated in wars or aggressions against other nations.

For the peace-loving people and the peoples of the world, Venezuela is a beacon of hope. This hope is threatened today by the supremacist ideology of Washington. The US ruling elite has decided to block political dialog in Venezuela and bring this country into a fratricidal conflict in order to justify this elite’s intervention plan.

We alert the world to the serious threat to world peace created by the warmongering obsession of Donald Trump. A military aggression against Venezuela or the overthrow of the Bolivarian Revolution will cause in the hemisphere a crisis of historic proportions in all orders, and will break integrationist efforts, taking away the purposes of all the nations of our region that have declared Latin America and the Caribbean a zone of peace.

The world must stop Washington madness. In the name of humanity, we demand that Donald Trump withdraw the threat of military aggression and repeal the economic sanctions and financial blockade against the Venezuelan people.

For all the above reasons, we call on all respectable men and women, from all places, ideologies and beliefs, on those who dream of a world of justice and equality, to join the WORLD CONFERENCE: WE ARE ALL VENEZUELA. DIALOG FOR PEACE, SOVEREIGNTY AND BOLIVARIAN DEMOCRACY, to be held in Caracas, Venezuela, on September 16th and 17th, and from that date on, in various parts of the world.

This day of global mobilization will bring together the solidarity of the peoples with the homeland of Simon Bolivar.
Venezuela is not alone. Today, we honor the brave Venezuelan people in their struggle for peace and dialog and in their defense of national dignity and sovereignty.

Mahatma Gandhi said: “There is no way to peace, peace is the only way.”

And Che Guevara, with his example of humanity, affirmed: “Solidarity is the tenderness of the peoples”.

In view of the imperial threat and warmongering, let us say today in the words of the great poet Pablo Neruda, our flag and our victory will be peace.

“Peace for the twilights to come (…) peace for the city in the morning when bread
wakes up…”

Peace so that Venezuela continues to illuminate the future.

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.”

raul-castro-and-fidel-castro-revolutionary-united

On every First of January, the world is celebrating the VICTORY OF CUBAN REVOLUTION, a moment forever connected with the huge personality and historical character of FIDEL CASTRO RUZ, the leader of the Cuban revolution and the creator of the powerful and independent Cuba of today.

 

H.E. President of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation of Romania-Dr. Anton Caragea

 

The recent manifestations, organized on the sad moments of the FUNERALS OF THE LEADER OF CUBAN REVOLUTION FIDEL CASTRO had proven internally and internationally that Your Excellency is the only guarantor to the legacy of Commander FIDEL CASTRO RUZ and his instructions, in carving in Cuba an authentic democratic and people`s revolution, that is serving as an example and inspiration for Latina America and the world community and I hope that, with Your support, the relations between Romania and Cuba will continue to rapidly develop on cultural, economic and political arena, proving the vitality of the bilateral relation, we can read in the message.

During 2016 the bilateral relation between Cuba and Romania had marked a clear up swing culminating with the fact that: 2016 is the first year when a Romanian Congratulatory Message was directed towards H.E. Raul Castro President of Council of Ministers of Republic of Cuba.

The effectiveness of the technology transfer will be based on capacity building and enabling environments to enable target stakeholders understanding.

The main issue to be addressed via the WORLD LECTURES on Sustainable Development Goals will be the faults on government officials training and capacity to effectively plan and implement sustainable development projects.

New technology transfer with required capacity would also be adopted to effectively create needed awareness in the minds of all identified stakeholders in response to 2030 sustainable development agenda.

Implementation methodologies

Raising awareness and promoting change-oriented communication based on the implementation of sustainable development goals (SDGs) and targets will be implemented in civil society organizations (CSOs and governmental organizations in response to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The annual workshop will engage multi-stakeholders in order to enlist them to contribute with their own ideas, strategies and energies, and creating a buoyant  debate on sustainable issues.

This will be achieved by a large range of mediums like:

community mobilizations, CSOs/ government interactive sessions on the SGDs and their targets, media platforms on print/electronic media, capacity building for community stakeholders and government MDAs, publications, banners, flyers, t-shirts, brochures, and the creation of social network platforms, and promotional materials (manuals).

Coordination mechanisms/governance structure

The initiative is headed by Professor Dr. Anton Caragea President Director General of The Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation (IRICE) in coordination with the Directors in charge of communication, economic cooperation and education departments and Public and Nonprofit Administration Department.

IRICE will coordinate all awareness campaigns and programmed  activities with other identified partners and stakeholders and submit report to relevant governments and institutions and partners.

Implementation of activities will be annually controlled and evaluated and will be bi-annually under revamp during a peer review meeting of partners destined to chart the way further, to identify challenges and roads forward.

COP21


​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.

Sustainable Development Goals

Your efforts after the COP21 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.
