FEBRUARY 1990

Formation of RACC

The formation of the Romanian-American Chamber of Commerce (the “RACC™”) in February 1990 marked an early milestone in the course of Romania’s emergence from beneath the cloud of Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal brand of communism.

OCTOBER 1990

RACC held its first event

On October 4, 1990 RACC held a breakfast for President Ion Iliescu with forty US business leaders at the Metropolitan Club in New York. This event was followed in November 1990 with a two-day RACC Conference on Privatization held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Bucharest. Led by Mark Meyer, senior representatives of Republic National Bank, Hill & Knowlton, Delloite & Touche, Colgate-Palmolive and Credit Commercial de France, as well as leaders from the New York City Council.
