My comments will be highlighted in BLUE.
Re-reading these contributions, I am humbled and grateful that all were willing mark a very important occasion for us, and record for posterity about what business and Romania were like in our first decade. We had started at the bottom, and all of us rode the wave up. What about now? Can I hear back from all of the group to get updates? Have we lost our collective optimism, or just misplaced it? I’ve highlighted a few favorite quotes. Which ones do you like?
I would also like to hear from anyone entering the market after, say 2007… where are you? We have the comments from the war horses but what about the fresh blood? Is there anyone out there that came with that same spirit of ‘curiosity, eagerness and hope’ mentioned by Matei Paun in the last few years?
