This is an article which we take it from www.romania-insider.com because it helps us to promote Romania better. There are some patterns many Romanians tend to follow, and some of them may come as surprising for foreigners. There are exceptions from the examples below, of course, and the generalization is simply to highlight the extremes one may be faced with while dealing with Romanians. Family is at the core of everything; family needs support, and offers support.   Even if many Romanians do not openly admit it, and even if they have borrowed a lot from the Western ways of thinking and acting, most Romanians are very much connected to their families. They will call close family and relatives often, sometimes on a daily basis, and in many cases young Romanians take care of their elderly, supplementing their low income. It runs both ways, with a lot of youngsters getting support from their families until an old age – either by living home with parents, or by receiving packages with food, if parents live in the countryside, and children in the city.

What Americans need to know about Romanians part 4

What issues would have the Romanians to solve? What would the Americans gain if they helped the Romanians? Romania’s economic problem is re-industrialization. The U.S. aid could be decisive, provided it is managed by the right people, both Americans and Romanians. Identifying the valid partners is not easy, but not impossible (either) if you do serious recruitment and selection of the professionals. Involving civil society in Romania is one of the keys to success. As long as the political class continues to be outside the national interest, it should be avoided in the economical relations, in the common economical projects that will have an American component of support. A good collaboration can be established between Romanians and Americans in the IT&C field. There are already premises spontaneously created without any ad-hoc project. Things can get a tremendous development in a larger project to include all the components of such Romanian-American cooperation in the global market. The interest is mutual; it would not assume an attitude of goodwill from the U.S., but strict understanding of interest! Romanians have proved to be the most interesting partners in Europe in this field. Americans might have much more to gain than Romanians! So much the better!

How did the Americans disappoint us? Today we know that the entire anti-communist dissident movement from socialist countries was organized and maintained by the KGB! The only anti-communist opposition and anti-Soviet was in Romania! But the White House did not realize that at the time.  They gave more credit to Lech Walesa and Vaclav Havel’s than to Nicolae Ceausescu … Not until 1990 did they discover that Lech Valesa and „Solidarity” union were inventions of the KGB … Just like Vaclav Havel, another KGB agent! Only recently did America realize that Nicolae Ceausescu was a „real” anti-Soviet and, so, essentially an anti-Bolshevik …

What kind of people are the Romanians?  Like any nation, Romanians can be defined in several ways, according to their strengths and weaknesses. One definition might be this: Romanians are very likely the oldest and steadfast people in Europe. Romanians, unlike the American people are a people who „walked” very little on the surface of the globe. The Romanian ideal is linked to origin, native home of the family hearth. „Whether the bread is the worst, it is still better in my country!” That sounds a Romanian word known to all Romanians

The next text is addressed to Americans interested in the existence of Romanians, Americans who have more or less connection with Romanians. And also to Romanians living among Americans. And to the Romanians living among Americans as well.The author of the text believes that in the United States there are many Americas, at least two from a strict Romanian point of view: Franklin Roosevelt’s America and another, very different, the America of General George Patton. We also know that America  the Romanians put their hope in is often lost ground both in … America and in the world. Fortunately, the „Romanian America” or the „America of the Romanians” that many have had in mind and soul as a model on a global scale  is still strong, is able to revive the „American dream” and revive confidence in the ability of  the human beings to decide their fate, to save themselves from self-destruction. This text is NOT our creation. We take it from the internet because we believe that suites good to our opinions and work about advertising Romania.
