In Romania we have carved out this diplomatic partnership status in order to better showcase the richness of our country and our values, values build around these personalities as they are ambassadors of fashion, creators of national pride and plus value stated Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

Romanian president (1996-2000) professor Emil Constantinescu underlined the fact that the reasons for his decision as a president to reinstate this diplomatic awards was the need to pinpoint the elites and the positive models for society to follow.

A society that turns a blind eye to his values, that does not pay them the necessary respect is a lost society. The only way to confront today’s crises of values and identity is to clearly mark down true values such: GENTLEMEN`S CORNER and the new Romania`s fashion ambassador: Mr. Sorin Preda.

At the same time London and Bucharest where celebrating fashion creators: a sign of normality and values blending.

Queen Elizabeth II has at the same time with our ceremony decorated the British fashion creators, and we here today we are decorating the foremost fashion creator of our country: Mr. Sorin Preda.

It is an example that our country is strongly enshrined in the great modern currents and in London or Bucharest we recognize the same values.


The Chairman of Economic Committee of Romanian Parliament Mr. Budai Marius underlined that The Parliament is honored to salute in GENTLEMEN`S CORNER the new country diplomatic partner that will help build a healthy image of Romania and our economy cannot develop without the creativity and success model offered by Mr. Sorin Preda, a model of success on a European scale.

Comunitatea diplomatica a salutat alegerea GENTLEMEN`S CORNER drept noul partener diplomatic pentru promovarea imaginii Romaniei in lume si sustinerea inventivitatii si a creativitatii intreprinzatorilor romani.


Titlul de PARTENER DIPLOMATIC oficial al Institutului de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica vine drept o recunoastere a eforturilor GENTLEMEN`S CORNER si a fondatorului acestuia dl. Sorin Preda de a educa consumatorul roman, de a oferi produse de cea mai inalta calitate, dar care sa incorporeze si creativitatea si fantezia creatorilor de moda romani.

Titlul de PARTENER DIPLOMATIC este cea mai inalta distinctie de merit pentru creatorii si intreprinzatorii ce reprezinta Romania si tot ceea ce are tara noastra mai de pret in lume.

Ceremonia oficiala a avut loc in data de 21 februarie 2018 si a reunit, intr-un moment festiv, reprezentanti ai corpului diplomatic acreditat in Romania, reprezentanti ai Camerei Deputatilor si Senatului si ai guvernului Romaniei, uniti in recunoasterea unui fenomen modern: al creatorilor de moda romani ce cuceresc lumea.


Fenomen reprezentat acum de creatiile GENTLEMEN`S CORNER, creatii care au obtint in toamna lui 2017 prestigiosul PREMIUL INTERNATIONAL DE CALITATE in cadrul festivalului modei.


CEREMONIA PARTENERILOR DIPLOMATIEI IRICE: Din stanga in dreapta: Dl. Sorin Preda-noul partener diplomatic, Presedinte Marius Budai-Camera Deputatilor/Comisia Economica, Presedintele Romaniei (1996-2000) Emil Constantinescu, Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea Presedinte IRICE.



 Este momentul in care Romania trebuie sa isi recunoasca valorile a declarat Presedintele Director general IRICE, Prof. Dr. Anton Caragea, in Franta creatorii parfumurilor si cei ce obtin premii in lumea modei devin membrii ai Legiunii de onoare, in Marea Britanie primesc titlul de cavaleri ai regatului, deoarece in ei salutam energia, dorinta de mai bine si de autodepasire si tot ceea ce are mai bun un popor.


In Romania am creat exact acest statut de partener diplomatic pentru a ilustra ca imaginea tarii noastre este construita prin eforturile acestor personalitati, ei sunt ambasadori ai modei, ai bunului gust, ei aduc mandrie si plusvaloare Romaniei a declarat prof.dr. Anton Caragea.

Presedintele Romaniei (1996-2000) Prof. Emil Constantinescu a mentionat la randul sau ca a construit aceste premii de recunoastere diplomatica din nevoia de ilustra prin elite si modele concrete varfurile societatii.


O societate care isi ignora valorile, care nu le respecta este o societate pierduta si nu putem lupta impotriva actualei crize de respect fata de valori si identitate decat marcand adevaratele valori precum GENTLEMEN`S CORNER si noul ambasador al modei romanesti Dl. Sorin Preda.


In acelasi timp in Londra si la Bucuresti creatorii de moda erau decorati: un gest de normalitate si integrare.   

Astazi regina Elisabeta a Marii Britanii tocmai a decorat in acelasi timp cu noi creatorii de moda ai regatului, iar noi aici decoram pe cel mai important creator de moda al Romaniei: dl. Sorin Preda.

Este un exemplu ca tara noastra face parte din marile curente moderne si la Londra sau la Bucuresti invatam sa recunoastem valorile.

Deputatul Budai Marius, Presedinte al Comisiei Economice din Parlamentul Romaniei a subliniat ca Parlamentul este onorat sa salute in GENTLEMEN`S CORNER un nou partner diplomatic, un partener pentru a construi o noua imagine a Romaniei, pentru a da un exemplu de crestere economica sanatoasa, bazata pe inventivitate si creativitate si a marcat ca economia Romaniei nu poate creste fara exemple, fara modele de reusita si putem saluta in dl. Sorin Preda un astfel de model de reusita la scara europeana.

Vice-Presedintele Catalin Nechifor a prezentat salutul Parlamentului pentru corpul diplomatic acreditat in Romania si pentru noul partener diplomatic: GENTLEMEN`S CORNER ce ilustreaza cel mai bine si valorile romanesti si normalitatea si integrarea tarii noastre in lume prin inventivitate si creatii de moda.

2018 will be a year dedicated to the celebration of the christian heritage of the Romanian people and will also mark the latinity, continuity and the two millennia of Christian life on Dobrogea (Dobruja) by placing at the fore of national and international attention the sacred heritage of Holy Martyrs Epictetus and Astion, has decided the academic council of The Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation of Romania (IRICE).

Saints Martyrs Epictetus and Astion are proof even today, two millenniums  after their sacrifice on the long-term presence of Christian faith on the lands of Dobrogea  and are a birth certificate of Romanian Christianity and an irrefutable evidence of the exceptional duration of Christianity on our lands.


They are also a perfect example of sacrifice and life offered in the service of Our Savior Jesus Christ, has highlighted their significance Professor Dr. Anton Caragea – IRICE President.

We are marking this year 100 years since the unification of Romania (1918) and we must also mark down for posterity our creative potential and not overlook that we are the beneficiaries of two millennia of Christian legacy and over 2.100 years of statehood, this are fundamental dates of the historical evolution of Romanian people.

Murighiol Cathedral dedicated to Saints Martyrs Epictetus and Astion.


In this perspective, the  Saints Martyrs Epictetus and Astion role is a fundamental one as we are speaking of the oldest historically proven martyrs of the Church on the territory of Romania, they are not only teaching us on the uninterrupted continuity of civilization on the banks of Danube, but also are offering us a lesson on the love for Christ of our people, even more resounding as we are having here saints registered in the Catholic and Orthodox pantheon  so truly universal saints testifying for the Holy Church in his wholeness, saints that are making Romania proud of his legacy, concluded the historical presentation of the moment Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

The Halmyris-Murighiol fortification today. A central point of the map of cultural and historical treasures of Dobrogea (Dobruja).


The focal point of the celebrations for 2018 THE YEAR OF SAINTS MARTYRS EPICTETUS AND ASTION will take place on July 8, 2018 on Murighiol (former roman city of Halmyris) in the cathedral of Saints Epictetus and Astion with a special mass taking place in the honor of the holy martyrs of Christian faith and of Romanian dedication: saints EPICTETUS and ASTION.



The excavated ruins of the Roman Cathedral built on VIII century on the spot where Saints Epictetus and Astion  suffered martyrdom for their faith in Jesus Christ in  290 after Chr.




It is the celebration of the oldest holy martyrs known as the territory of Dobrogea, Epictetus and Astion, the Orthodox Church commemorates on 8 July. Description of life and their passion was kept in the Acts of the Martyrs with large details.
They are known as saints Halmyris, the ancient Christian city located on the banks of the Danube that was called in ancient times “Almyra”. They suffered a martyr’s death during fierce persecution against the Christian church triggered by Emperor Diocletian (244-311) on 8 July 290. Surely they are the martyrs old Dobrogea certified undoubtedly springs hagyographic.


Life and their passion have given in the Acts of the Martyrs, but unfortunately, their holy martyr act we were kept only in a later century copy. XV, located in the Church of the Saviour in Utrecht and was published in 1615 by Jesuit scholar Herbert Rosweyde († 1629).

In 1921, Benedictine Dom Germain Morin discovered in remembrance of martyrology Ieronimian St. Epictetus and Astion on May 23 in “The S.S. Epicteto presbytero et Astion monachu martyribus Almiridensibus in Scythia “, confirming the veracity of statements he Acta Sanctorum, edited by N. Rosweyde, mentioned above.


Acta Sanctorum took passages from a study of its impact on the two saints and martyrs renowned researcher and historian Netzhammer Raymund (1862-1945), Catholic archbishop arrived in Bucharest and left posterity work Epiktet und Astion, diokletianische Martyrer I Danaudelta, Zug. 1937.



Saints Epictetus and Astion from Halmyris

Saint Epictetus, priest, and Saint Astion, (improperly said) monk, originals from Asia Minor, were martyrs for Christ in the 3rd century in Scytia Minor (the today Romanian region Dobruja-Dobrogea, situated between Danube and the Black Sea).

They were originally from Little Asia.

Information about their lives is known only from a copy of a 15th century manuscript kept in the archive of the Savior Church in Utrecht, published in 1615 by the Jesuit monk Herbert Rosweyde, the initiator of the hagiographic collections Acta Sanctorum, under the title “SS. Epicteto presbytero et Astion monacho, martirybus Almiridiensibus in Scythia “.

Anul 2018 este dedicat celebrarii mostenirii crestine a poporului roman si va marca totodata latinitatea, continuitatea si mileniile de viata crestina la gurile Dunarii prin aducerea in prim planul atentiei nationale si internationale a mostenirii sacre a sfintilor martiri Epictet si Astion, a anuntat consiliul academic al Institutului de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica al Romaniei (IRICE).


Sfintii Martiri Epictet si Astion ne vorbesc si astazi, la doua milenii de la sacrificiul lor, despre vechimea credintei crestine pe taramul Dobrogei, ne ofera un reper fara tagada si un certificat de nastere al crestinismului romanesc fiind cei mai vechi sfinti martiri ai Romaniei si totodata ne ofera un exemplu de viata in serviciul Mantuitorului Nostru Isus Hristos si al oamenilor a apreciat, prof.dr. Anton Caragea -Presedintele IRICE.


In cadrul manifestarilor celor 100 de ani de la unire (1918) trebuie totodata sa marcam potentialul creator al poporului roman si sa nu uitam ca beneficiem de doua milenii de crestinism si de peste 2.100 de ani de continuitate statala, sunt acestea date fundamentale ale devenirii istorice a poporului roman.

Catedrala din Murighiol a Sfintilor Martiri Epictet si Astion.


In acest tablou rolul Sfintilor Martiri Epictet si Astion este unul fundamental, caci vorbim despre cei mai vechi sfinti martiri ai Bisericii de pe teritoriul Romaniei, ei ne vorbesc nu doar despre credinta si crestinism la gurile Dunarii, dar si despre continuitatea neintrerupta de locuire si civilizatie pe teritoriul tarii noastre, despre dragostea fata de Hristos a poporului nostru cu atat mai mult cu cat vorbim despre sfinti recunoscuti si in canonul catolic si in cel ortodox, deci sfinti universali ai intregii Biserici, de care Romania trebuie sa fie mandra a incheiat prezentarea istorica a evenimentului prof. dr. Anton Caragea.

Cetatea Halmyris-Murighiol astazi. Punct central pe harta culturala si istorica a Dobrogei.


Punctul central al manifestarilor ANULUI 2018 A AL SFINTILOR MARTIRI EPICTET SI ASTION va avea loc in data de 8 iulie 2018, cand la Murighiol (fostul oras roman Halmyris) in catedrala Sfintilor Mucenici Epictet si Astion o slujba speciala va avea loc onorand sfintii mucenici ai neamului romanesc: EPICTET SI ASTION.


Ruinele catedralei dedicate Sf. Epictet si Astion in secolul VIII (marcand locul martirizarii lor in 290 d.Hr)




Sfinţii Mucenici Epictet şi Astion, prăznuiţi pe 8 iulie, au pătimit în anul 290 d.H. în timpul persecuţiei împăratului Diocleţian, în cetatea romano-bizantină Halmyris. Sfintele Moaşte au fost descoperite la Murighiol, Jud. Tulcea, pe data de 15 august 2001 de o echipă româno-americană de arheologi, condusă de arheologul dr. Mihail Zahariade şi au fost atestate antropologic de către cercetătorul Nicolae Miriţoiu. I.P.S. Teodosie, Arhiepiscopul Tomisului, a condus o comisie bisericească ce a hotărât, patru luni mai târziu, aşezarea Sfintelor Moaşte în Catedrala Arhiepiscopiei Tomisului.



Dobrogea este detinatoarea celor mai vechi Sfinte Moaste descoperite pe teritoriul Romaniei. Ele apartin preotului Epictet si monahului Astion care au primit cununa de “martiri ai lui Hristos” in ziua de 8 iulie anul 290. Aceste odoare de mare pret au fost scoase la iveala in vara anului 2001, in ziua praznuirii Adormirii Maicii Domnului, de o echipa de arheologi, romano-americana condusa de dr. Mihail Zahariade.


Cripta se afla sub altarul bazilicii Episcopale a Halmyrisului, localitate antica situata intre Murighiol si Dunavat, jud. Tulcea.

Desi inscriptiile si locul unde au fost descoperite atesta cu certitudine identificarea lor, cercetatorul antropolog Nicolae Miritoiu a facut o serie de analize, care au confirmat fara putinta de tagada ca sfintele moaste apartin preotului Epictet si monahului Astion.

In informarea catre presa, Presedintele CCIRJ Mihai Prundianu a prezentat ultimii trei ani ca fiind anii unei dezvoltari fara egal in cadrul relatiei bilaterale: au fost anii de munca intensa, de eforturi continue, care au adus dividende si am reusit sa crestem nivelul schimburilor  de la 372 de milioane de dolari la incpeutul mandatului meu la peste 607 milioane USD in prezent.


Pentru a intelege mai bine importanta economiei japoneze pentru piata romaneasca trebuie sa subliniem ca Japonia este unul dintre principalii parteneri economici asiatici ai Romaniei, sprijinind masiv, cu asistenta financiara si tehnica, procesul de reforme din tara noastra.


Astfel conform datelor oficiale au fost acordate imprumuturi în cadrul Official Development Assistance (ODA) pe perioade de 30 – 40 de ani pentru:

  • realizarea liniei de metrou Piata Victoriei – Otopeni, cu un credit in yeni echivalent al cca. 320 mil.;

  • reabilitarea Centralei termoelectrice Turceni (Grupurile 3, 4, 5 si 6), in valoare de 280 mil. USD;

  • construirea terminalului de containere in portul Constanta Sud, printr-un credit in valoare de 120 mil. USD.


Mihai Prundianu, Presedinte Camera de Comert si Industrie Romania – Japonia: ramanem deschisi propunerilor de cooperare nipone.



In privinta planurilor de viitor Presedintele CCIRJ , dl. Mihai Prundianu, a subliniat întreaga disponibilitate a Camerei de Comert si Industrie Romania – Japonia de a dezvolta in continuare relatiile bilaterale si a marcat intregul sau interes fata de initiativele sale de colaborare prezentate de partea nipona.


Presedintele CCIRJ, Prundianu Mihai, a vorbit despre deschiderea Romaniei catre investitiile japoneze si despre rolul important al portului Constanta, ca o poarta de intrare a produselor japoneze in intreaga Europa, gratie pozitiei-cheie pe care o are la Marea Neagra.

Cooperarea romano-japoneza este esentiala pentru combaterea saraciei in Romania, pentru cresterea competitivitatii mediului de afaceri si pentru imbunatatirea nivelului general de trai si trebuie privita cu seriozitate si responsabilitate, a concluzionat Mihai Prundianu.

Concluzia reuniunii a fost ca: activitatea Camerei de Comert si Industrie Romania Japonia este una fundamentala pentru economia romaneasca, pentru dezvoltarea Romaniei si pentru indeplinirea de catre tara noastra a obiectivelor de dezvoltare durabila, de combatere a saraciei, asa cum au fost ele asumate de catre Romania.

Toti cei prezenti l-au felicitat pe Presedintele CCIRJ  Mihai Prundianu pentru activitatea sa deosebita, demna de un adevarat reprezentant pentru indeplinirea obiectivelor de dezvoltare globala in Romania.

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.
