Just standing here now brings back memories of how hard we worked to set up Ţuca & Asociaţii and put the firm on the right track. In fact, it was right here that we were 'born', so to speak, and I am delighted to be back again on such an auspicious occasion. You can be sure I won't forget this evening for a long time. Many thanks to Saptamana Financiara and its Editors!"
