We must also emphasize that Dubai is priding himself as being uniquely situated, as a bridge between the rapid emerging Chinese market, the opportunities offered by Indian market and by rapidly developing Latin America`s economies.

The natural venue of contact between the wealth of Europe and the emerging markets, Dubai is perfectly situated as the natural leader of WORLD EXPO competition.

The generous theme, selected by Dubai for WORLD EXPO entitled: CONNECTED MINDS, CREATING THE FUTURE!  is offering a large area of opportunities for the participant countries to host themes ranging from environmental protection, to economic development, tourism and ways to build tolerant environment for cultures and religions etc.

Supplementary, Dubai is representing not only a paramount fruition and an outstanding effort of the Emirati, but also an example of world cooperation in the city construction, an ambitious and peerless project: a capital for the future.


Bucharest, capital of Romania, is hosting the Exhibition DUBAI- CAPITAL OF WORLD EXPO also to impress upon the strategic dimension of United Arab Emirates -Romania bilateral relations and to state about the brotherhood feeling between the cities of Bucharest and Dubai.

Even more important, Dubai had emphasized his role as a world decision maker choosing a daring theme: CONNECTED MINDS, CREATING THE FUTURE!   for the EXPO 2020 international exhibition.

The Exhibition DUBAI- CAPITAL OF WORLD EXPO is also the second public display of a Capital city for Romanian public; it is the first city from Middle East and Arabic Golf ever presented internationally and is one of the most important cultural event dedicated to a city, in the last 30 years, in Romania.

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.

Emiratele Arabe Unite au parcurs un drum lung în ceea ce priveşte dezvoltarea economică şi socială in cei 40 de ani de independentă, declară Ambasadorul Emiratelor Arabe Unite -Yacoub Yousef Al Hosani

“Emiratele Arabe Unite au parcurs un drum lung în ceea ce priveşte dezvoltarea economică şi socială in cei 40 de ani de independentă” declară Excelenţa Sa Ambasadorul Yacub Yousif Al Hosani în dialog cu Prof.dr.Anton Caragea



Emiratele Arabe Unite sărbătoresc pe 2 decembrie Ziua Naţională şi cea de-a 39-a aniversare. După cum explică Excelenţa Sa, această dezvoltare uimitoare într-o perioadă scurtă este firească, Emiratele Arabe Unite se bucură astăzi de unul dintre cele mai înalte şi sofisticate standarde de viaţă dintre toate ţările lumii, cu o economie puternică şi o societate democratică. 

Cum a fost posibil acest lucru într-o perioadă atât de scurtă?

Emiratele Arabe Unite, în demersul de unificare început acum 40 de ani, au înregistrat multe realizări care au transformta statul şi societatea, precum şi pe cetăţenii săi, pentru a intra în secolul XXI înarmaţi cu capacitatea de a face faţă provocărilor şi beneficiilor acestui secol. În acelaşi timp, au căutat permanent  să-şi stimuleze cetăţenii  pentru a obţine mai mult şi pentru a întări ceea ce s-a realizat, asigurând astfel generaţiilor viitoare o viaţă decentă şi stabilitate.

Desigur, Emiratele Arabe Unite au parcurs un drum lung în ceea ce priveşte dezvoltarea economică şi socială,  însă noi am fost în măsură să construim o viaţă instituţională puternică, cu un grad mare de deschidere către societate. Aceste aspecte care au caracterizat procesul de dezvoltare, susţinute şi de spiritul de toleranţă, au prevalat în toate segmentele societăţii. De asemenea, ca ingredient important, puternica noastră viaţă spirituală ne-a fundamentat şi îmbogăţit experienţa, plasând ţara noastră pe un loc special, nu doar la nivel regional, ci şi la nivelul întregii lumi. Într-adevăr, Emiratele Arabe Unite trăiesc de mai mulţi ani un proces de dezvoltare nouă care a transformat E.A.U. într-un centrul financiar şi comercial internaţional. Pe lângă aceasta, trăim o experienţă parlamentară nouă, în adevăratul sens al cuvântului, care corespunde standardelor internaţionale. Pe de altă parte, succesele obţinute la nivel naţional nu ar fi fost posibile fără o politică externă înţelept promovată de stat, care a facilitat îndeplinirea obiectivelor.

            Transformarea Emiratelor într-un centru  economic global nu a fost posibilă doar prin luarea unei singure decizii, ci este rezultatul planificării pe termen lung şi a eforturilor depuse în mod susţinut. Aceste eforturi nu s-au limitat numai la simple construcţii economice, ci se regăsesc în infrastructură, în calitatea serviciilor, în dezvoltarea socială, incluzând aici şi dezvoltarea resurselor umane prin programe de formare continuă, în crearea unui mediu legislativ şi juridic în acord cu evoluţia economică şi socială atât la nivel naţional, cât şi global. De aici rezultă că poziţia Emiratelor Arabe Unite pe harta economică mondială nu este temporară sau conjuncturală, ci este rezultatul unor eforturi continue. În cadrul acestui proces de dezvoltare au fost antrenate multe instituţii economice şi financiare, care au construit o fundaţie solidă pentru a depăşi criza cu care se confruntă astăzi economia mondială.

Care este situaţia actuală din Emiratele Arabe Unite şi ce planuri de dezvoltare aveţi în viitor?

 Nu există nicio îndoială că E.A.U. au înregistrat mari realizări în ultima perioadă, însă noi ne continuăm eforturile, urmărind permanent să ne dezvoltăm. Statul sprijină constant acest proces de dezvoltare, astfel încât să poată gestiona optim fluctuaţiile regionale şi internaţionale sau orice alte evenimente.

Pentru că ne aflăm la începutul unei noi etape, suntem preocupaţi să asigurăm cetăţenilor noştri accesul la informaţiile necesare pentru a avea mai multă putere în demersul de angrenare a tuturor membrilor societăţii în toate instituţiile statului (culturale, de învăţământ,mass-media, economice etc.), contribuind astfel la construirea naţiunii noastre. În aceste momente, când aniversăm 40 de ani de la fondarea statului, speranţele pentru ţara noastră nu au limite; aspiraţiile guvernului nostru pentru cetăţenii săi, aşteptările noastre pentru un viitor mai luminos sunt, de asemenea, nelimitate. Vom intra într-o eră nouă, care reflectă viziunile ambiţioase şi grija faţă de generaţiile viitoare, sub conducerea înţeleaptă a Alteţei Sale Preşedintele Statului, şi a Vice-Preşedintelui, care păşesc pe urmele Sheikhului Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahayan, fondatorul şi tatăl Emiratelor Arabe Unite, Allah să-l odihnescă în pace.

 Excelenţa Voastră cum puteţi descrie relaţia dintre România şi Emiratele Arabe Unite?

 Istoria relaţiilor bilaterale este marcată de interacţiuni la diferite niveluri, care au debutat, în plan diplomatic, la 1.08.1989. Relaţiile sunt întărite de vizitele reciproce la nivel înalt efectuate în ultimii  ani, care au contribuit la dezvoltarea prieteniei şi aprofundarea cooperării între cele două ţări. Emiratele Arabe Unite beneficiază de o semnificativă experienţă de dezvoltare, dar şi de o înaltă apreciere venită din partea organizaţiilor economice internaţionale, ceea ce a facilitat relaţionarea dintre cele doua ţări. Faptul că România este una dintre ţările europene interesate de relaţiile cu ţările din regiune, în general, şi cu Emiratele Arabe. Unite, în special, este importantă dezvoltarea relaţiilor în toate domeniile. De exemplu, în 2008 volumul schimburilor comerciale a ajuns la 522 de milioane de dolari. Dublarea volumului schimburilor comerciale în ultimii cinci ani este un indicator clar al dinamicii care caracterizează relaţiile dintre cele două ţări.

 Excelenţă, care sunt planurile dumneavoastră pentru dezvoltarea relaţiilor dintre România şi Emiratele Arabe Unite în domeniile politic, economic şi cultural?

 Emiratele Arabe Unite, prin directivele Alteţei Sale Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahayan, urmăresc să dezvolte relaţiile de prietenie şi cooperare fructuoasă cu România, împărtăşind dorinţa comună de a extinde perspectivele de cooperare în beneficiul celor două ţări. E.A.U. se vor concentra asupra căilor de consolidare a relaţiilor bilaterale, dar şi asupra modalităţilor de intensificare a schimburilor în diverse domenii de activitate, cu scopul clar exprimat, de satisfacere reciprocă a intereselor. Un rol important revine Comisiei Mixte Ministeriale, care oferă cadrul instituţional necesar dezvoltării cooperării bilaterale într-un mod practic şi coerent. Sper ca în perioada următoare să extindem cooperarea –  în beneficiul ambelor ţări – şi asupra altor domenii de activitate, precum turismul şi investiţiile.

 Care este mesajul Excelenţei Voastre pentru cititorii noştri, cu ocazia Zilei Naţionale a Emiratelor Arabe Unite?

Ţara noastră a devenit un actor important pe scena economică mondială şi, totodată, este renumită şi pe harta turismului internaţional ca o destinaţie foarte apreciată, toate aceastea datorându-se conducerii noastre înţelepte. Cu această ocazie îi invit pe prietenii noştri români să viziteze Emiratele Arabe Unite şi să observe realizările obţinute în timpul celor de 40 ani.


”Emiratele Arabe Unite intră într-o epocă strălucitoare a viitorului” declară Excelenţa Sa Ambasadorul Yacub Yousif Al Hosani în dialog cu Prof.dr.Anton Caragea

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 .

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.
