Romania’s national brand
The news abounds with articles such as this one that can be found at https://www.tolo.ro/2009/10/12/brandul-de-tara-adjudecat-cu-890-000-de-euro/.
In fact, there is only one piece of news: a ”hotel consortium” wins an auction with a huge stake for us on the basis of the lowest price. Mister Tolontan was a gentleman in his writing about this subject.
We, Branzas, were non-existent in this subject. Why? Because we refused to take part in this competition. We knew we depended on a civil servant with a ”purse of 4000 euros” – as I quote from Mr Tolontan. We simply did not want to submit to arbitration, especially after seeing the specifications workbook. We are sorry, but we are far too serious for such an adventure. In this case, the sum of 890000 euros is not even worth it.
