Romanian agriculture minister wants sheep used for country branding

Romania’s agriculture minister Petre Daea said that a sheep can be successfully used for Romania’s country branding because ‘sheep are living statues’, according to Romania Insider.

2017-06-20 15:26:52 - From the Print Edition

"Just look in any corner of the country, how beautiful this animal is grazing Romania's green pastures. Everybody has leaves, but not sheep like in Romania. Near a sheep you can find a leaf, but near a leaf you can't find a sheep," Daea said at local TV station when asked why the sheep should be a national symbol, reports local Agerpres. His statement drew a lot of ironic comments from all over the internet, and even from Romanian officials.

Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu said that Petre Daea was not the tourism minister but the agriculture minister and that agriculture is more connected to sheep. However, he said he talked to tourism minister Marius Dobre about the country branding and about promoting other national symbols, such as Dracula and Miorita, a sheep from an old Romanian pastoral ballad. Romania's tourism branding logo, which is currently represented by a leaf, can't be changed until 2020, because it was created with EU funds.
