DIPLOMATS IN VISIT TO VRANCEA AND PANCIU DOMAINS

Posted by Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation on July 9, 2019 at 7:00 AM

Vrancea County will be at the center, for the first time ever, of THE DISCOVER ROMANIA 2019 summer trip of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation (IRICE).


DISCOVER ROMANIA is a programme destined to acquaint diplomats and international friends of Romania with the country historical patrimony and leisure opportunities and destinations.

 




A welcoming home away from home for the participants of 2019 DIPLOMATIC TRIP: The DOMENIILE PANCIU HOTEL.

 




The destination selection was made keeping in balance the growing international fame of the Vrancea county, the breathtaking beauty of the region and the celebrations destined to underline, during 2019, the YEAR OF GREATER ROMANIA.

 


The Summer 2019 Diplomatic trip will take place from 12 July to 15th July and will be dedicated as always to diplomats and foreign friends and partners of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation of Romania and will be carved as an opportunity and invitation to discover VRANCEA regional heritage, history, culture, hospitality and cuisine treasures.

 





In 2018 the diplomats visited the magic land of Danube Delta. In 2019 the will adventure into the center of Romania, the Vrancea County.

 

 




Vrancea is still an unspoiled land offering a balanced climate all year round, spectacular scenery, celebrated religious hot-spots like : Buluc Monastery (build by Caragea boyars in XVII century), Recea Monastery from Dumbraveni or Musunoaiele Church from Fitionesti, the mineral waters of Soveja used for medical therapy and the line up of monuments of Focsani, Marasti and Marasesti built after First World War to commemorate the rebirth of Romania after the first global conflagration.

 





The famous and picturesque Buluc Monastery (build by Caragea boyars in XVII century).

 




All these cultural and historical highlights can be accessed in day time trips from the host and center of our discovery adventure in Vrancea: The DOMENIILE PANCIU HOTEL.

 



Exactly this was another argument in choosing Vrancea for the discovery trip: the opening of an extraordinary resort and hospitality complex in the area: DOMENIILE PANCIU HOTEL, this is providing us with the high luxury base for our trips in the region mentioned Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

 

 






The main battlefields of the First World War when Romanian army defeated the German attackers and saved the nation independence are also to be discovered on Vrancea County.

A string of monuments erected between 1918-1938 are crowning the land of Vrancea.

 




This hospitality complex is to become the gravity center of our activities, to discover Vrancea and also our night base for wonderful meals and recuperation after travel.


At the heart of this sensibilization campaign aimed at informing Romanian public with regards to the extraordinary tourism potential of the Vrancea is Mr. Daniel Guzu, the General Director of DOMENIILE PANCIU and an avid and ardent promoter of the Vrancea County beauties and potential, and determined in sharing them with the world.

 






Mr. Daniel Guzu, the creator of DOMENIILE PANCIU brand, congratulated by diplomats on the venue of 2018 International Wine Fair of Bucharest.

 

 





The diplomat’s program was coined, with the help of HOTEL DOMENIILE PANCIU owner and Director, Mr. Daniel Guzu, a man addicted to Vrancea and passionate to share his knowledge of this legendary county.

 


We hope that this diplomatic trip to Vrancea will be a new success of the DISCOVERY ROMANIA program, started in 2008 by The Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation and will be followed this autumn by a discovery trip to another magic land: Maramures, stated Professor Dr. Anton Caragea.

 

 





Vrancea: a place of unique beauty and unparalleled sceneries.

HIS MAJESTY PREAH BAT SAMDECH PREAH BOROMNEATH NORODOM SIHAMONI- KING OF CAMBODIA: JULY 2018 ELECTION WILL BE FREE

Posted by Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation on June 17, 2018 at 3:05 AM

Despite the international community unanimous voice in praising the elections environment on the Kingdom of Cambodia as conducive to free and impartial elections some interested parties desirous in seeding havoc and conflict, continued to raise questions and to try to falsely present the realities of the Kingdom.  


In front of a media slur and outrageous misinformation campaign, destined to taint Cambodia`s people and authorities determination to host free, equal opportunity and transparent elections, His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni has the final say, closing any honest debate on the subject: The Kingdom will enjoy free and fair elections and the people of Cambodia will have the full opportunity to express their views and decision for the country direction and leadership.





His Majesty King Norodom Sihamoni ends the debate for any honest observer of Kingdom`s politics: 2018 elections will be democratic and exemplary.




The royal message writes that:

“On this occasion, I would like to solemnly call for all eligible voters to cast their ballots in order to elect national leaders for development and glorious progress in all fields”.


 

The monarch said the forthcoming election is a free, fair, and confidential election that goes with the liberal multi-party democracy, so the voters should not worry about any pressure or intimidation from anyone or any political party.


“I urge all the compatriots to exercise your rights to vote in according to your own conscience and to freely elect any candidate, any political party that you trust,” King Sihamoni said in a royal message released to the media.


Earlier the international community also praised the election preparations in regard to an outstanding PRESS CODE offering unequal access to the media and citizens to the information and enshrining election transparency as the main factor in these elections and to the regulation for international and national observers that has assured a perfect control of the elections process.

The 14-minute documentary, titled Will the July general election be liberal, pluralistic, and democratic? draws on four points to reach its conclusion.


The election process would be smooth and free, multiparty, open to observers and without violence, the video says.




Twenty parties had registered for vibrant and democratic elections in Cambodia.



Noting that there are 20 political parties vying in the elections despite the country only having eight million voters, the video says: “Cambodia is setting another good example for other countries in terms of pluralism, which is the basic principle of a democratic election.”


“In brief,” in continues, “the general election scheduled for July 29, could be considered one of the best elections in Cambodia’s history.


“Best election in the sense that this election will be held with the participation of so many political parties coupled with strict implementation of three main principles – being liberal, pluralistic, and democratic – principles that are the best foundation for an election.


“Last but not least, this coming election will be conducted in a peaceful and nonviolent manner and free from rhetorical quarrel,” the commentator says.


The video ends with the stand that democracy in Cambodia is maturing and that no one can destroy it (the video can be watched here).

PRESIDENT PROFESSOR DR. ANTON CARAGEA GIVES THE OFFICIAL START FOR WATER DAY CELEBRATIONS

Posted by Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation on April 16, 2018 at 3:45 AM

Water is life. Without water there can be no life. The world’s freshwater supplies, unfortunately, are under threat.


Water stress is increasing in many parts of the world. Aquifers are depleted faster than they are replenished.

 

 

 


The growth of the world’s population will increase demand for water by 55% by the year 2050, placing even further strain on freshwater reserves.





Rivers are the arteries of the earth. Seen from above, the earth’s creeks, lakes, rivers and wetlands form natural networks which sustain nature.


Rivers and lakes account for 90% of the world’s freshwater stocks.


Rivers have been the cradles of human civilization from time immemorial. The earliest civilizations were nurtured along the banks of rivers – including the Euphrates, the Indus, the Nile and Yellow rivers.

 

 

 


Rivers remain vital today.


Rivers will be essential for all eternity.


Rivers are indispensable to human well¬-being.


The waters of rivers are used for cooking, drinking, fishing, recreation, transportation and washing.


Rivers also provide water for irrigation for farming, mining, manufacturing and other economic activities.


Rivers are important for the security of states.





The management of transboundary watercourses must promote cooperation and collaboration rather than confrontation and conflict.

 


Rivers must be protected from pollution, including that caused by environmental degradation and the discharge of effluent from industry, mining and agriculture. River pollution impacts adversely on water quality, on health and the economic and social well-being of citizens.


The protection of the sources of the world’s freshwater sources is essential to ensuring:


– citizens’ entitlement to water;


– communities’ access to safe and sanitary water; and


– countries’ and the continent’s water security;


The adverse effects of climate change – droughts, flooding, rising sea levels and extreme weather events – are exacerbating water quality and environmental security.


The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has forecasted that climate change will result in reduced surface and ground water in most sub-tropical regions.

 


The protection of the world’s freshwater sources, therefore, is essential to global water security.


World Water Day reminds us of our shared responsibility to protect the earth’s water resources.


WE have, therefore, calls on this World Water Day to take action to protect water for future generations.


We recommend to this World Water Day, a three-point action agenda to enhance:


– Commitment to pay continuous attention and unceasing action, not only to occasional conferences;


– Collaboration among states, especially neighbours which share the waters of rivers; and


– Conservation of water resources and the protection of the environment everywhere in order to maintain the integrity of the earth’s rivers and lakes.


At stake is nothing less than humanity itself. I wish success to the celebrations marking World Water Day.


I thank you.

DOMENIILE PANCIU achieved the apex of international recognition and succeeded in placing under limelight once more the value of the Vrancea terroir that is producing sparkling wines on equal footing with famous Champagnes sparkling wines or Italian ones.

We must remember that: the DOMENIILE PANCIU under the brand name of CASA PANCIU was selected as Europe`s representation and diplomatic wine in 2014 and in 2017 on the EUROPE DAY ceremony the Vin d’honneur was once again provided by the DOMENIILE PANCIU selected wine.


In Romania, in three out of six years, DOMENIILE PANCIU were selected to uphold Romanian wine industry prowess and to keep the banner of the Romanian sparkling and still wines being awarded the DIPLOMATIC WINE designation in 2014, 2016 and again in 2017.

 






To this long list of achievements we must add the DECANTER bronze for the DOMENIILE PANCIU BRUT sparkling wine in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and in 2015 the Muscat Ottonel sweet wine has received a Special Mention for a perfect aroma and balanced taste winning the appraisals of world`s top wine tasters, as the organizers of DECANTER competition are affirming.
