Interview with Cristina Ciobanu, Chairman IUBCCI UAE & President of Diplomacy Chamber of Commerce Romania/UAE
Tell us about the idea of the congress. How did you create it? Where was the first event held?
First, let me introduce you to IUBCCI UAE. IUBCCI UAE connects closely with the diplomatic community to facilitate collaboration between their countries and the U.A.E. public and private sector leaders to further a common economic interest and cooperate on solutions for the global economy and security. IUBCCI UAE is dedicated to supporting the creation of a global economic harmony, helping small and medium-sized enterprises to raise their products and services and to emphasize the important role they play in the world economy. Part of our strategy was to create some relevant tools and “High End Congress of economic Diplomacy” is one of them. A very important one. Each edition is organized in one different country, and the guests are brand representatives from the Government, from the diplomatic environment, from the private business environment, representatives of the most important institutions and companies both from the host country and from many other countries. For example, our first Edition, organized last year in Dubai, was attended by distinguished guests from 60 countries. Among them, the IUBCCI UAE Dubai event was attended by the royal family, Mrs. Arshi Ayub Mohamed Zaveri, CEO – Senior Advisor Royal Family Offices UAE. Each edition of the Congress is adapted to the economic and business environment of the host country, and depending on the panels the number of participants from other countries varies.
How did you personally come to this field and what it gives you?
I started my career in the Bilateral Chamber system in 2012, as President of the Romania – Estonia Bilateral Chamber of Commerce. In 2020, I became President of the Chamber of Commerce of Commerce with the UAE. This is how IUBCCI UAE was founded. However, my experience in diplomacy and in the business environment is much longer.
The diplomatic community and the business environment of which I am a part, give me the abilities to be the initiator of unique economic and diplomatic programs in the world. “High End Congress of Economic Diplomacy” is one of them. The main objective of this Congress is to bring together under the same roof exceptional people, who accomplish wonderful things and, together, to offer an international know-how, offering also the opportunity of new international economic relations. And I can say that this is what this Congress is giving to me.
This year’s event in the Principality of Monaco was very successful. Why did you choose this venue? Do you think it is a special place?
The Principality of Monaco is a leading, innovative and international country and an International financial center. Monaco has political, judicial and fiscal stability, has major and ambitious projects. The Principality has an unique real estate market, a high level of security and is actively developing technologies, products, processes, business models, ways of life and consumption patterns that are more environmentally friendly.
Monaco is known as a place with a very sophisticated public. How did you reach out to your guests and how did you surprise them during the congress?
The Congress is a landmark event. Each edition gathers members of the Government, representatives of the diplomatic corps, businessmen and investors of the participating countries. So, Monaco was a perfect place for this second Edition. I think it was not about surprising the guests. It was about inviting them to an edition that met their expectations and, why not, even exceeded them. Whether we’re talking about One Monte Carlo, the amazing Salle Empire – Hotel de Paris or Monaco itself, I think everything lived up to my guests’ expectations.
During this year’s edition you held a charity auction at the Gala dinner. How did the idea come about?
The idea came naturally, especially after I met the wonderful Martine Ackermann. Her work, her involvement, her dedication and her success with The Association “Child CARE Monaco” projects are the source of inspiration for all of us.
How did you choose the participants of the congress and the projects?
The participants are those people who feel that they share the topics of interest of the congress. The speakers, as I mentioned, are brand representatives from the Government, from the diplomatic environment, from the private business environment, representatives of the most important institutions and companies. Since we are talking about the diplomatic, economic and business elite, it is clear that the projects cannot be anything but extraordinary.
Can you tell us about your plans? Where in the world the next event will take place and how our audience can get there.
At the moment, we have several options. But I promise you that as soon as I decide, I will let you know all this details. I avail on this occasion to thank you for this interview and for the interest and support given to IUBCCI UAE.
