Intalnire cu fostul ambasador american in Romania, James Rosapepe

On Monday August 3rd 2015, the Romanian American Society of Washington State had the honor of hosting the former Ambassador to Romania, Maryland State Senator James Rosapepe, in a visit on the Microsoft Corporation Redmond Campus. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Microsoft Romanians Diversity Group within Microsoft, the “Datina” Romanian Folklore Ensemble and the American Romanian Cultural Society.

The representatives of the Romanian community attending the meeting have been very impressed by the continuing interest and support of Romania from the Ambassador, so many years after his service ended. The meeting was an excellent opportunity for the Romanian community to discuss with the Ambassador Rosapepe about collaboration opportunities in support of Romanian interests in the US, as well as in fostering the connections between Romanian organizations in the US through the Alianta.org initiative. Some of the specifics items discussed included suggestions for volunteering opportunities in Romania, better cooperation and lobbying with local state authorities, local representatives in the US Congress in support of lobbying for Visa Waiver.

We are certain this is just the beginning of a long and fruitful cooperation and we’d like to thank the Ambassador, on behalf of the Romanian community in Washington State, for his initiative to meet with us, as well as for his continuing support of our ancestral home.

Luni 3 August 2015, Asociatia Romanilor din Statul Washington a avut onoarea sa-l gazduiasca pe fostul Ambasador American in Romania, actualmente Maryland State Senator James Rosapepe in timpul vizitei Domniei sale in campusul din Redmond al Microsoft Corporation. La intalnire au mai participat reprezentanti ai grupului romanilor de la Microsoft, ai ansamblului folcloric “Datina” si ai Societatii Culturale Romano Americane din Seattle.

Reprezentatii comunitatii romanesti participanti la intalnire au fost impresionati de interesul si sprijinul sustinut pentru Romania al Ambasadorului Rosapepe la atatia ani de la intoarcerea din post. Intalnirea a fost o ocazie excelenta pentru comunitatea romaneasca sa discute cu Ambasadorul Rosapepe despre posibilitati de colaborare in sprijinul intereselor Romaniei in SUA si de asemenea in dezvoltarea relatiilor dintre organizatiile romanilor din SUA prin initiativa Alianta.org. Unele dintre ideile concrete au inclus sugestii de voluntariat in Romania, o mai buna cooperare si lobby cu reprezentati ai autoritatilor locale din statul Washinton precum si cu reprezentantii locali in Congresul SUA in sprijinul admiterii Romaniei in programul Visa Waiver.

Suntem siguri ca acesta este doar inceputul unei lungi si fructuoase colaborari si dorim sa-i multumim Excelentei Sale, in numele comunitatii Romanilor din statul Washington pentru initiativa de a se intalni cu noi si de asemenea pentru sprijinul continuu al tarii noastre de origine.
