The president’s message
In Romania, Constantin Brancoveanu Awards honor the great values of Romanian science, culture, history, economy and medicine every year. We passed the borders and awarded Constantin Brancoveanu Awards also into the Romanian Diaspora from several European Capitals. We crossed the Ocean and the Alexandrion Foundation reached American ground along with our company group, the land of freedom, of prosperity, and of endless opportunities.
During this first edition of Constantin Brancovranu International Awards personalities from different cultures will be awarded. Why did we choose to do so? Certainly, in the years to come, our awards will cover personalities from the entire globe. Just this time, the Alexandrion Foundation and I have decided to honor those who for those who have madea a colossal difference in our lives. As you will see, we will award great personalities of Syrian origin, the country where I was born and now it is going through hard times. We will also award personalities from the Greek and the Romanian cultures.
On a personal note, these are the two cultures representing the two countries that formed me in terms of education and business. In other words, these are the countries where I perfected myself as a professional and as a businessman.
Last but not least, the Constantin Brancoveanu International Awards will also go to internationally-valued Americans. For me, they represent the country that has received me to build a great economic project, the project of my life I could say, a project for my family and for my colleagues.
Together, we have a duty to built for ourselves and for the generations to come, a better, brighter world!
