"What is Romania?
For me is a special country, where I had a very instructive work and life experience.
Thanks to Leonardo da Vinci - Enlargeurope project, Nicoletta, my colleague, and I, had a three months traineeship in Consiliul National al Intreprindelor Private Mici si Mijlocii (CNIPMMR), Projects Area, in Bucharest.
This organization hosted us and involved us in its main activities. Specifically we worked on a project called CLAS, directed to the promotion and implementation of services centers for Small Medium Enterprises. CNIPMMR found us a nice accommodation in the city center very close to the office where we worked.
Thanks to CNIPMMR we participated at some activities in beautiful cities like Oradea (the election of the Consiliu's main bodies) and Galati (conference on the consequences of UE enlargement to Romania in 2007) and to know other UE projects in which the Consiliu is partner.
During our spare time we could learn the principles of Romanian language and we discovered the most picturesque corners of the capital city. Thanks to our work we could know more about Romanian legislation and foreign delocalization of enterprises, and we acquired some competences on project managing.
While in Romania we discovered in our colleagues and friends very competent people, well prepared and qualified.
Even if sometimes our life was quite stressing because full of inputs and things to do, we appreciated the fact that we can manage it, and the only thing that we regret is not to stay more in this marvelous country."
