„Doamnelor si domnilor,
Meine Damen und Herren,
Ladies & Gentlemen,
Everyone who is with us here today has had many different opportunities in life, which ultimately led them here to this very point. You’ve ceased many of them, that’s what made you successful, and you are rightfully proud of these moments. But there are also some opportunities that you let slip, some chances you regret not having taken.
The relationship between Germany and Romania holds many opportunities. They come, they go, they may be used, they may get away unused and sometimes even unnoticed. One characteristic of opportunities is, that they benefit both parties, they have the power to bring people, cultures, even countries closer. That’s why we now have this unique opportunity to fasten the ties between Romania and Germany. Let’s use it!
Let’s use it for economy, for the people and for culture.
Starting with economy:
Germany is with 18,6% of all exports Romanian’s trade partner number one. But looking at the bigger picture, we see that Romania is only on the 22nd rang of export destinations.
If we compare Romania to the Netherlands, which in fact is according to the number of inhabitants approximately as big as Romania, we see, that they are on the fourth place of the export ranking of Germany – without having more to offer. Why is that?
It’s all about used opportunities. The focus on an empowered economic cooperation between Germany and Romania only started at the end of the 20th century. Since then, there are several initiatives fighting for stronger bonds, like for example the Romanian-German IHK in Bukarest, which was founded in 2002. Now, it is essential to foster those first seeds of an economic partnership. Not only could Romania benefit even more from the German export strength in science and technology, but it would also pay off for Germany, as the Romanian chemical, metal and oil industry is sophisticated and would complete the German-Romanian axe of industry. Furthermore, both of our countries are intrigued by engineering. This shared interest can be encouraged, cultivated and multiplied in joint projects. And to conclude this line of argument: Looking at the distribution of services along the different branches of the economy in both states, it is quite obvious, that the strengths and weaknesses of our countries combined add up. The strong first, rural sector in Romania, making up 12,3% of the economy can support the weak one in Germany, with only 0,8%. Additionally, Germany is incredibly strong referring to their third, industrial sector, where about 69% of businesses are located. This can replenish the less distinct third sector in Romania, which only amounts to 50% of the economy. A trading and educating exchange between both of our countries will help us use our opportunity to first get more independent, but second move closer together.
This “moving closer together” is the second opportunity offered to us by the cooperation of our clubs, of our people, of us and you. In addition to the incredible business opportunities, also the individual bonds between our people are just waiting to form an accomplished relationship, which goes beyond cautious neighbourhood. Every one of us here today knows the feeling of a mere acquaintanceship, which after some time, expands to the connecting feeling of friendship or even love. We all have been in those shoes some time. The shared interest in business development between our two confident countries helps establish such a link. Shared passion, joint concerns and mutual activities are the basis for long term friendships among the members of our two clubs. With trust, you can build solid and stable relationships, which will perpetuate the exchange between our countries.
The next step after establishing a common economical relationship and a private friendships based on trust is the adhering of our cultures and values, which every member of our clubs is sharing. Removing trade barriers impacts the way people behave in a way that further increases the rate of globalization. The average cultural distance between countries decreases over the period. Most importantly, when two countries open up to international trade, it results in a steeper reduction in the cultural distance between them than between countries which did not experience an increase in the level of their bilateral trade. Shared culture leads to tighter bonds, which gives even more opportunities to us all – on the economic, individual and cultural level.
But without taking the currently offered opportunities, neither Germany nor Romania knows, what it’s missing. So take your chance, let’s start this new era of international cooperation between our two beloved countries. Let’s benefit from the opportunities of today, in order to create new ones tomorrow. There’s so much more yet to discover!
That’s why I am so proud, that our clubs are now cooperating on an international level. This is the first step to this era of opportunities for you as well as for us and I am confident that already this meeting today is going to establish an atmosphere of trust and excited expectation for the opportunities yet to come. And, I want to add, that I am especially enthusiastic to also render a visit to Romania later this year in order to fasten the ties between our people, our clubs and therefore our countries even tighter.
Dear Alex, you told us before you had this opportunity to found a connection between Romania and Bavaria 1 ½ years ago and today I can say, you used it! So to us all, let’s use the opportunities we get in life.
Thank you for listening and have a great evening.”
