”In 2007, when I bought here Rapsodia hotel, Botoșani was the only town in the area without any mall or modern commercial gallery”, said Prisecariu, 46. Botoșani is a Romanian town with 100,000 inhabitants, where the deindustrialisation had the consequence of reducing the number of employees. In these conditions, most of the inhabitants working in the city are state employees, the industry players are a few and usually young people from 18 to 25 are out of town for study. (source: zf.ro)
