On the occasion of European Tourism Academy celebrations, European Council on Tourism and Trade President, Professor Dr. Anton Caragea had addressed the official congratulation message to the European academicians.
The message was delivered on the milestone moment of the European Tourism Academy becoming a member of United Nations Academic Initiative.
The message of greetings reads, in part:
“Over the past decade, the members of the European Tourism Academy have made a significant contribution to strengthening the intellectual and economic potential of the world. Many prominent European scholars worked here. Their efforts contributed in large measure to the creation of the theoretical and practical foundations that enabled the development of world culture, tourism and diplomacy and contributed to our ability to resolve cultural problems.
Today, in the context of modernising the world economy and managing its transition to an innovative path of development, it is important to significantly enhance the effectiveness of the Academy.
We need to ensure the widespread use of theoretical developments and technologies in tourism, diplomacy and culture. Of course we also need to expand relations between the Academy and academic centers in Europe and abroad.
I am confident that your knowledge and experience will continue to be useful in the European cultural, tourism and diplomatic stage and will help ensure tourism and environmental safety of Europe and the world.”
The European Tourism Academy works on realising and extending the scientific potential of European cultural, trade and tourism industrial complex.
Dr. Anton Caragea, European Council on Tourism and Trade President reads the congratulatory message together with H.E. Ion Iliescu- former President of Romania and H.E. Emil Constantinescu-Romanian President .
