Diplomatic passports for the new ambassadors of Romanian tourism


Premier Victor Ponta attended Monday afternoon the ceremony of handing the diplomatic passports to the new ambassadors of Romanian Tourism, Simona Halep, Horia Tecau, Anina Ciuciu, Alexandru Tomescu, Mihai Covaliu and Ionut Budisteanu, held at the Victoria Palace.
“We are very proud with everything they did. (…) It is an extraordinary message I give to Romania, that you can be successful and proud with your country. I believe that, for all Romanians, any of the six new ambassadors represents an extraordinary model. If I succeeded in convincing all six to join the government, I would do it. (…) I wish all youths in Romania have them six as models,” Victor Ponta said, after which he congratulated the new ambassadors.
“I want to thank Romania for this title. I am most honoured and it is an enormous joy for me. As I repeated many times, I am 100 pc a Romanian product in sports and I am glad about it,” tennis champion Simona Halep said, who is 3rd in WTA rankings. “With this title, I will try to give a good image and closest to reality of what means being a Romanian, but also a Roma,” stated Anina Ciuciu, a 24 year old ethnic Roma woman who studies Law at Sorbonne.
“It is a great responsibility and I believe that, as we acquitted ourselves of the duty of representing Romania in the world, we will do the same from now on, in the fields where we come from and in what we do every day here, in our country,” Olympic fencing champion Mihai Covaliu said in his turn.
