06.10.2017 : Esteemed Academia

Even in today's money-driven world Academia Celebrations are still received with high respect by the public as two examples of partner universities of the European Retail Academy show: Prof.Dr.Th.Purcarea from the Romanian American University (RAU) reports on Twitter about the Opening of the Academic Year at his university in presence of the Rector, the faculties, the administrative staff, representatives of business partners and even members of the diplomatic corps (see also Rector at his speech).

A second example comes from VSE Prague when Prof.Dr.B.Hallier was awarded "doctor oeconomiae honoris causa" (watch on YouTube). This ceremony is reserved for important Czech and international economists. Among others VSE Prague awarded in the Post-Socialist time the Nobel Prize laureates Gary S.Becker, Milton Friedman, Robert A.Mundell and Douglas North. Hallier was honored for his activities in applied sciences especially in permanently promoting innovations for the micro development along the Total Supply Chain which in the end accumulates on the macro level of a sector as well as in the long-run in the wealth of a nation.

Prof.Dr.Chung and Prof.Dr.Hallier agreed in their speeches that a Green Economy can be profitable already in the medium-term for companies and countries and that a Global House of Harmony has to focus Ecology first being based on economic and ethical balances. The Silk Road Revitalization could contribute according to all speakers to those values.
