ROMANIAN ECONOMY IN 2012. ROMANIA IN DEEPENING CRISIS.

Monday 6 of February 2012 at the Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation headquarters was held the first conference of 2012: The evolution of Romanian economy in 2012.  The crisis will continue!

 The conference has joined economical experts from Romania and European Union, economical supervisors and personalities of political, economical and academic life of Romania.

Another example of Romanian economic success : street beggars

 2009 and 2011 – first years of economic crisis.

 The conference started with an evaluation of economic crisis impact in the period of the first years: 2009, 2010 and 2011.

In the first year of the crisis in Romania -2009- the economic crisis has affected the vital areas of economic life: the collapse has started with construction industry and construction material factories, collapse continued by the real estate market shrinking. Others affected sectors where: insurance, banking and stock exchange and in all the financial sector was strongly shaken down. The consumer confidence has fallen sharply and the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has being reduced with 10% in 2010 and 8% in 2011.

 The decrease in our economy has being so devastating that we are below the 2000 level. Unfortunately the economic collapse of 2010 and 2011 has laid the foundation for a crisis without equivalent in Romanian history that will affect the country in 2012 and 2013.

 2011- The year of economic earthquake.

 2011 will be remembered without a doubt as the year of economic turmoil in Romania, had appreciated in one voice all the experts present at the gathering. First of all the 2011has being the year in which the Romanian economy had collected all the hard hits from all the economic collapse of the last years. The financial system has being especially hard hit and this had made the fragile Romanian economy to reach the breaking point. The inflation had resurfaced and the experts appreciate that a 10% percent yearly inflation is unavoidable.

The resurgence of inflation had put a dramatic pressure on population economy and had made any recovery unthinkable for the next 2-4 years. The collapse in economic system, the internal and external investments had being reduced to minimum, the credit on internal market has being practically suspended and all this had provoke for 2012 an economic decrease of more than 15% of GDP or even 18% of GDP after others opinions. A factor not to be neglected in amplification of the crisis is the governmental incompetence that by increasing the taxes, legislative chaos and a deliberate politics of destroying the middle class investors in the favor of big companies all did nothing ells than to aggravate the economic crisis.

 2012 – between crisis and slowing down economy.

 The 2012 will be a decisive year to slow down the economic collapse or to direct the economy in a new catastrophic decline. It must be very clear, all economic experts underlined, that the present economic decline will last for a decade at European level, so all those opinions that declared that Romania will start a new economic growth before the next 10 years; either don’t know what they are saying either is bluntly laying.

All the European statistics are speaking about the lost decade of Europe between 2010 and 2020 , term referring to the blocking of economic development at continental level and the frozen of present situation for a decade.

Those that are declaring that Romania will surpass in the period of economic crisis the France or Great Britain economy , are telling stories that are unbelievable , declared laughing Mihail Racaceanu – chief economist. What is important is to succeed that we have in 2012 a decrease in economy of less than 10% and in the interval between 2012 and 2015 to stop the decline and in 2020 to come back to pre-crisis year of 2007 and in 2050 at the pre-revolutionary level of 1989.

 In 2050 the Romanian economy will reach the level of 1989 as a historic economic reference year.

 This assessment was a strong one, keeping in mind that the pre-crisis governmental statistic declared that in 2025 Romania will succeed in recuperating the gap and reach the level of industrial activity prior to 1989 Revolution.

This perspective is no longer feasible, a new perspective is appearing after the crisis and after the lost decade and a cumulative GDP decrease of more than 60% from 2007 economy level.

This economic recession will be hard to recuperate in the context of nongovernmental involvement, the general economic climate of recession and finally the worst factor of all: the burden of external debt.

 External debt will plunge Romania into financial meltdown.

 The factor that will suffocate Romanian economy in the next period will be, after 2015, the foreign debt crisis.

The Boc government has careless accepted more than 36 billion dollars credit and in total the private and state debt of Romania is reaching the unbelievable sum of 95 billion dollars, this only if the government will no longer accept new loans.

But this perspective is an unrealistically  one as President Traian Basescu has announced new external loans for 2012 , that will surely bring Romania to being incapable to pay the foreign debt. Despite the writing on the wall in all of cases like Greece, Spain and Ireland, Romania is accepting new loan from International Monetary Fund, loans that will not be invested in developing and modernizing the economy but in pay offs for next parliamentary and presidential elections’. This consumer invested loans at extortionate interest rates will suffocate completely an ailing and failed economy as Romanian economy is.

Unemployment: with a rate of registered unemployment of more than 10% of the active population and with another 15% percent of the population already left out of the governmental unemployment aide Romania tops all the EU member countries with a real unemployment figure of more than 25% of the population. This figure must be put in perspective with more that 50% of the population below the poverty line and the full picture of the economic meltdown and social tragedy could be analyzed. Romania economy is in crises and no plans for a future development had not being adopted.

 

2012: The economic crisis is worsening.

 The conclusions of the most important economic experts of Romania where clear: the crisis is not over by far, but has entered in a more difficult faze that will affect financial and banking system and economic fundaments. The economic crisis will continue until 2015 at the earliest and a coming back cycle that will last until 2020. This decade will be without a doubt the lost decade of Romania but if the necessary measures are not rapidly taken to re-establish control on economic decline than we risk that Romania economy will not come back not even in 2020.

United Arab Emirates came a long way in economic and social  development in the last 40 years declares H.E. Ambassador Yacub Yousif Al Hosani in dialogue with Professor Anton Caragea Ph.D, MA, FINS 

   Presedintele UAE – H.H. SHEIKH KHALIFA BIN ZAYED AL NAHYAN          

 

 

 United Arab Emirates are celebrating on 2 December the National Day and the 40 year anniversary. How is your Excellency explaining the amazing development of United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) in such a short period of time, United Arab Emirates are enjoying today one of the world highest and sophisticated life standards of living  and also enjoy a powerful economy and democratic society.

 How it was all possible in such a short time?

United Arab Emirates in there unification action, now 40 year old, have registered achievements that transformed the state and society in order to enter into XXI century with the capacity to face challenges and opportunities of this century and in the same time they wanted to offer a permanent stimulus for their citizens to have more capacity and achievements and to ensure to future generation a decent life and stability. Off course,  the United Arab Emirates came a long way in economic and social  development and we have being able to build a powerful institutional life, with an important degree of openness in society.

All this had characterized the development process and the spirit of tolerance , that prevail in every sector of society in U.A.E. Also we have important ingredients:  as a strong spiritual life that enrich the bases of our experience and put our country in a special place , not only in regional level, but also at world level. Indeed United Arab Emirates are undergoing from a long period of time  a process of new development that transformed us in a center for international trade and finance. Also we are living a new parliamentary experience in the true meaning of the word  , that completely correspond to national standard . On the other hand the success obtained at national level would not be possible without the wisdom of our foreign policy that facilitates reaching these goals.

  Transforming Emirates into an economic center of the world would not be possible to explain only by one decision , but as a result of long term plans and efforts. These efforts were not merely economic construction but included infrastructure, quality service, social development, including also human capital development by training and a legislative and judicial environment in accordance with our economic and social global development.

From here results that United  Arab Emirates positioning on world economy map is not temporary or based on an economic conjecture , but is the result of a continuous effort.  In this development process where involved many economic and financial institution that build on solid foundation   that  overcome the economic crisis that is confronting today the world economy.

What is today situation on United Arab Emirates and what are the future development plans for United Arab Emirates?

There is no question that U.A.E. have great achievements in the last time, but we are continuing the efforts for future development. From this reason the state is working constant in developing process so that we could face any regional or international fluctuation or event`s . Today we are at the beginning  of a new stage that will aloud our citizens to obtained all the necessary information’s and to have more power to integrate all the citizens in all the institution of the state ( cultural, mass media , economic, education ) in order to better contribute to our nation building . In this anniversary moment of 40 years from our National Foundation Day our hopes regarding our sate are limitless and our government aspiration for his citizens are also without limitation and we are aspiring for a bright future. We shell enter  a new era that reflects ambitious visions and careful planning for future generations under the wise leadership of His Highness President of State and his Vice-President that are fallowing on the footsteps of SHEIKH ZAYED bin SULTAN AL NAHAYAN , the founder and father of United Arab Emirates, Allah grant peace to his soul.

Your Excellency how you will describe the Romanian- Emirates relationship?

Our bilateral relations are old and full of diplomatic interactions on different levels. The diplomatic relations begin at 1.08.1989. Also the relations are substantiated by reciprocal high level visits in the last years that contributed to developing friendship and cooperation between our countries. United Arab Emirates are having a high development experience and a high appreciation on world economic organizations and this is making bilateral relations easier. Also because Romania is among European countries interested in regional relations in general and in relations with United Arab Emirates, in special this is important in developing relations in all fields, and in 2008 the total commercial exchange reached 522 million dollars. Doubling this amount in the last five years is by itself a clear indicator on the dynamic that characterized our bilateral relations.

Your Excellency what are your future plans in developing relations between Romania and United Arab Emirates on politic, economic and cultural level?

  United Arab Emirates by His Highness SHEIKH KHALIFA bin ZAYED AL NAHAYAN directives are programming to develop relations of friendship and mutual beneficial cooperation with Romania and is a shared desire to extend our cooperation prospective on the benefit of our two countries and we will concentrate on ways to consolidate our bilateral relations and ways to increase our exchanges in various fields of activity on the firm intention of satisfying reciprocal interest for the future. The most important is the Mix Ministerial Commission that contributes to development in bilateral cooperation in a practical and coherent way. I hope in the nearest future we will increase our cooperation in mutual benefit to serve our goals and ambition on economic development with a focus on tourism and investments.

2012: PRETURILE CASELOR SI TERENURILOR VOR SCADEA CU 60%.

300 de euro metrul patrat construit in inima Bucurestiului

 

Peste 150.000 de case vor fi abandonate in 2012

In conferinta de presa pe teme economice din 8 noiembrie  2011 ce a avut loc la Institutul de Relatii Internationale si Cooperare Economica profesorul Anton Caragea a prezentat noul raport preliminar asupra evolutiei pietei imobiliare realizat de IRICE si  declarat ca prabusirea pietei imobiliare va continua si in 2012 dar se poate spera ca din 2015-2016 piata se va stabiliza la preturi cu 50-70% mai reduse decat cele din acest an.

Nu exista semne de refacere pe piata imobiliara.

 Nu exista semne de refacere pe piata imobiliara , deja din 2009 marile proiecte de investitii imobiliare fie sau retras fie au inghetat proiectele din Romania. In noul an 2012 , situatia se va permanentiza , nu exista nici un motiv economic sau politic care sa sprijine o crestere a investitiilor imobiliare, din contra. Prabusirea pietelor imobiliare din tarile vecine: Bulgaria si mai ales Grecia iar mai recent Italia , au produs marilor firme de investitii imobiliare pierderi aproximate la 50 de miliarde de euro ( in ultimii 3 ani ) si au redus apetitul lor pentru investitii in aceasta zona. Deja conform studiilor europene de profil firmele ce aveau prognozata intrarea pe piata romanesca sunt in serioase dificultati financiare.

Prabusirea pietei imobiliare va depasi 50% din preturi in  urmatorul an, pana in luna decembrie 2012 se poate prognoza ca metrul patrat construit, in zonele centrale ale Bucurestiului, va ajunge la 300-400 de euro iar la periferie la 200 de euro. Deja Guvernul Romaniei a anuntat ca  blocarea creditelor, cresterea somajului si scaderea nivelului de trai vor continua in 2012 , atunci se apreciaza ca pe piata vor aparea peste 150.000 de noi unitati ( case si apartamente) care vor fi vandute de banci ca active insolvabile si vor impinge scaderea preturilor si mai mult.

300 de euro metrul patrat construit in inima Bucurestiului.

Un raport bancar arata ca deja bancile iau ca valoare a activelor pentru dosarele de credit  suma de 400 de euro pe metru patrat in centrul capitalei. Se poate prognoza deci o scadere si mai drastica, si sunt voice care vorbesc despre o  varianta pesimista de intoarcere a pietei imobiliare inapoi cu 15 ani a declarat profesorul Anton Caragea. Economistul sef Mihail Racaceanu a declarat ca atata vreme cat piata imobiliara va reusi sa se stabilizeze la preturi de 400-500 de euro metru patrat construit in centrul Bucurestiului se poate imagina o revenire in urmatorii 5-10 ani.

 Este acum o perioada cand nu as sfatui pe nimeni sa cumpere a declarat dl. Racaceanu,  deoarece preturile sunt inca mari si la 1000 de euro metrul patrat nu va cumpara nimeni, cand noile unitati ce se construiesc acum sunt la costuri de 200 de euro metru patrat si se vor vinde cu 300-350 de euro , preturile vor mai scadea substantial si rapid in urmatoarea perioada. Acum este doar timpul de a vinde rapid,  cata vreme preturile se mai mentin ridicate si inainte de scaderea drastica din lunile februarie – martie si de noul val de falimente si  de scadere a valorii imobilelor  din octombrie 2012 cand , venirea iernii , a noilor sume de intretinere si a noilor facturi de la gaze, in conditiile in care Primaria Bucurestiului a anuntat taierea subventilor din aceasta iarna , toate acestea vor ameninta piata imobiliara cu colapsul, daca scapam din noul an  cu o scadere de 50% -60% a preturilor ne putem considera norocosi a concluzionat economistul sef M. Racaceanu .

WHY IS TRINIDAD TOBAGO THE WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION ? by Honorable Kamla Pershad Bissessar –Prime Minister of Government of Republic of Trinidad and Tobago

The award of World’s Best Tourist Destination will significantly assist in branding destination Trinidad and Tobago globally. We must change the perception of our country in the overseas markets. We must celebrate our country and work hard to sell our country abroad. It is anticipated that this award will open us to untapped European markets that are perhaps weary of the traditional leisure destinations and desire a more exciting vacation experience.

Honorable Kamla Pershad Bissessar –Prime Minister of Government of Republic of Trinidad and Tobago 

Date: Wednesday October 19, 2011

Venue: Regency Hall-  Hyatt Regency Trinidad

Time: 12.30pm

I am indeed truly humbled and deeply honoured to be standing here today to accept, on behalf of the People of Trinidad and Tobago, the World’s Best Tourism Destination Award for 2012 from the European Union Council on Tourism and Trade. A non-governmental organisation, this body has a wide ranging membership of tourism representatives within the European Union.

We were also declared the World’s Favourite Cultural Destination in 2012 by the European Union Council on Tourism and Trade.

It is my understanding that this award was unanimously given to Trinidad and Tobago primarily for our history of impressive cultural festivals, environmental conservation and biodiversity protection amongst other factors.

It is not an award that is traditionally given to well-established tourism destinations but it is the highest honour awarded to non-European Union countries that have embraced sustainable tourism as a tool for cultural and social development and that respect and preserve their cultural and natural heritage.

I extend my heartfelt thanks to the European Union Council on Tourism and Trade for having us join other distinguished winners of this award such as the United Arab Emirates, Syria and South Koreea.

But moreover, I thank the Council for recognising what most of us fail to acknowledge and value. And this is … Trinidad and Tobago is brim-full with tourism potential.

We are not the traditional sun, sea and surf destination. What differentiates us from the rest of our Caribbean neighbours is our diverse and rich natural, cultural and built heritage.

This People’s Partnership Government is seriously committed and dedicated to the development of the tourism industry in Trinidad and Tobago. Tourism is an incredibly important pillar in our national economic diversification effort.

We are not paying “lip service” to the industry as some may have done in the past. For too long tourism has been looked down on as a second class service sector.

We recognise that tourism is a business and fiercely competitive. Tourism requires skills, talent, enterprise and more importantly the support of government.

The award of World’s Best Tourist Destination for 2012 is important for several reasons.

Firstly, it facilitates the formation of closer linkages with Europe for tourism, trade and investment possibilities. The European continent, as in its colonial past, is a formidable trading partner especially with the fall of communism and the rise of new economic powers.

Europe is, and will certainly continue to be, a cornerstone for our international business.

Ladies and gentlemen,

The economic and social advancement of this beautiful twin island Republic of ours depends to a large extent on how well we develop and harness our resources. And one such untapped resource is that of tourism.

The award of World’s Best Tourist Destination will significantly assist in branding destination Trinidad and Tobago globally. We must change the perception of our country in the overseas markets. We must celebrate our country and work hard to sell our country abroad.

It is anticipated that this award will open us to untapped European markets that are perhaps weary of the traditional leisure destinations and desire a more exciting vacation experience.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

An important opportunity that this award presents is a platform to advance the commitments of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA).

As many of you may or may not be aware, in 2008 Trinidad and Tobago, along with its neighbours in the rest of the region, embarked upon a reciprocal trade agreement with one of our largest trading partners – the European Union (EU). The signing of the EPA signalled a shift in our trade and economic development.

We are now required to open our markets to Eastern Union manufacturers and service providers; but the EPA also provides market access for our country’s export of services to the European Union.

The Economic Partnership Agreement also speaks to specific disciplines on tourism services because of its importance to the social and economic development of the European Union and the Caribbean. These rules are complemented by a commitment to legally binding open market conditions for each other. For instance, the Europe Union has made commitments for travel agencies, tour operators, tourist guides services.

Trinidad and Tobago, on the other hand, have made commitments in relation to hotels and restaurants, marina services and spa services.

The EPA also includes measures that would make it easier for European Union investors to invest in the Trinidad and Tobago. This award, then, will provide a platform to attract increased investment and to promote growth and development in the tourism sector. The Economic Partnership Agreement is, therefore, rendered more relevant, more strategic and more focused on deliverables.

Honorable Prime Minister Kamla Pershad Bissessar receives WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION AWARD  for 2012.

The World’s Best Tourism Destination award will, moreover, engender a measure of national pride amongst our citizenry and raise the level of public confidence in Trinidad and Tobago as a tourist destination.

We should be proud of our country and its tourism potential. We have so much to be proud of, so much to share with each other, and so much to show off to the rest of the world. Let us not doubt or question our intrinsic value.

In closing, ladies and gentlemen, I must take a moment to publicly acknowledge the hard work and sacrifices of our tourism community … the stakeholders in our midst. The last few years have been quite challenging for all in the tourism industry.

But rest assured that the tourism industry will get the backing it needs.

But we cannot do it alone. We have all to work together. The private sector in the lead but with government acting as a facilitator; supporting every step of the way.

I want to urge you to continue working with commitment, energy and enthusiasm for the betterment of the tourism industry.

I thank you. God’s richest blessings on us all.
