Speech by Tova Ben Nun-Cherbis

Distinguished guests, dear students, teachers, and members of the 2Day Ambassador Organizing  Committee,

descărcare First of all, on behalf of the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation and the Lauder Reut Educational Complex Romania, as well as on behalf of all participants, I would like to deeply thank the Romanian Presidential Administration and especially the Presidential Advisor Iulian Fota,  for their great courtesy to host and support the initiative of this Conference.

Today is an extraordinary day –emotional and rewarding. It is normal to be excited on a day like this, looking toward a journey that demands courage, effort, and determination. Today we are inaugurating a program that is unique in high school education: the 2 Day Ambassador Conference at Lauder, dedicated to promoting diplomacy and international relations studies, for high school students in Romania and abroad.

As many of you know, Lauder-Reut students enjoy an exclusive educational offer that is unique in pre-university academics: accredited Diplomacy, International Relations, Business, Media, and Communication studies. Our Lauder-Reut students follow these studies during 3 of the 4 high school years, all thanks to the exclusive academic partnerships that the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation concluded upon opening the high school in 2006 – with prestigious Romanian and foreign universities, the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Romanian Diplomatic Institute, the Raphael Recanti International School and the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy in Israel, the British Council Romania, the Media University, the Weizmann Institute of Science, and the Cannes Lions Romania.

Today, we pride ourselves with two graduating high school classes that specialized in this field and discovered how fascinating it is. They want to share their experiences, the joy of study and of the exchange of knowledge and ideas, with their peers in Romania, as well as abroad.

On the double-anniversary of a century and a half of Romanian diplomacy and 6 years of diplomacy, international relations, and business at Lauder-Reut High School, we wanted to create a celebratory program that will popularize the study of these fields among all high school students.

Today, the 2Day Ambassador – Lauder Conference is born, dedicated to the study of diplomacy and international relations. Additionally, this Conference offers a welcome incursion into the world of economics, closely tied to the context of international affairs.

During this first edition of the Conference, I observed with great joy how our young students from the Lauder-Reut High School joined many talented students from Lauder Yavne High School in Budapest, Lauder High School for Study of Foreign and Hebrew Languages in Sofia, the Matei Basarab, George Cosbuc, and Mihai Viteazul National Colleges in Bucharest, Ort Bejamina High School in Israel, and Waldburg College in Netherlands.

We welcome them all, and wish them good luck in this Conference that is dedicated to them and built around the idea that early education in diplomacy, international relations, and business is possible, and can be successful even in high school.

I would also like to wish a warm welcome and to thank our illustrious guests , who totally embraced the idea to make room in their overcharged program, in order to come, sit with the students and introduce them in the world of diplomacy, international relations, and economics today. Thank you,

  • Mr. Cristian Diaconescu, Presidential Advisor , President of the Romanian Senate

  • Your Excellency, Mr. Mark Gitenstein, US Ambassador in Romania

  • Ms. Hersel Arezoo, Deputy Ambassador, Israel Embassy in Romania

  • Mr. David Morris, Political Advisor, US Embassy in Romania

  • Dr. Laura Sitaru and Associate Professor Dr. Radu Dudau

  • Mr. Bogdan Olteanu, Vice-Governor of the Romanian National Bank

  • Dr.  Lucian Anghel, President of the Bucharest Stock Exchange

  • Mr. Valentin Lazea, Chief Economist, Romanian National Bank

  • Mr. Catalin Pauna,  Senior Economist, World Bank

   Thank for your time and for leaving your work of such high importance,  for the sake of these young students.

We owe special thanks as well, to our partners in Israel – the prestigious universities Raphael Recanti Int’l School and Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy, part of the Interdisciplinary University Center (IDC) Herzliya Israel, whose representatives –Jonathan David, President of Raphael Recanti Int’l School and Vicepresident for External Relations, as well as Dr. Assaf Moghadam, Senior Lecturer at the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy and chief researcher at the Institute for Antiterrorism- accepted our invitation and find themselves in Romania for the first time, in order to participate in this Conference. 

Welcome and good luck to all!
