From May 21 to July 30, 2018, the exhibition called “Bucurest-Leipzig_Lipscani – o poveste europeana” (e.n. – “Bucharest-Leipzig-Lipscani – a European Story”) hosted by the Bucharest Chamber of Commerce and Industry Palace (4 Ion Ghica Street) will be open from Monday to Friday, between 10.00 and 15.00. The exhibition is organized by the Bucharest Chamber in partnership with the Bucharest Municipality Museum and is part of the series of events celebrating 150 years of uninterrupted activity of the Bucharest Chamber, held under the slogan “Dialogue. Identity. Value”.
“Bucharest Chamber’s history is the history of an elite business environment, but our history is also related to many cultural facts. By organizing this event, we are planning to bring the past back to our days, to strengthen the present and give consistency to the future. The exhibition aims to prove on the one hand the European presence of Romania, and on the other hand, the fact that our economy was a competitive economy, with a competitiveness given by the efficiency of the created structures, some of the before their time” stated the CCIB President Prof. Eng. Sorin Dimitriu, PhD., at the opening of the exhibition.
“This exhibition tells a story that connected two cities by the tenacity of some people who had a different life project. We are in the footsteps of the merchants that created a new country from nothing. Why the premises of Bucharest Chamber of Commerce? Because we are in the institution created and developed by the important merchants of Bucharest. For example, I would remind Hagi Theodoraky, a former President of the Chamber, the creator of the wholesale trade on the Dambovita land” stated the Director of the Bucharest Museum, Dr. Adrian Majuru.
The opening was attended by cultural and economic personalities of Bucharest, as well as by representatives of the press. The exhibition project developed by the Bucharest Municipality Museum with the support of the Bucharest City Hall, is for the first time in Romania, after it was presented to the Leipzig public, in Germany, for the first time, at the beginning of this year.
