Alessio J.G. Brown

Executive Director, GES; Head of Research Area, Kiel Institute for the World Economy

 

I welcome you to the GES 2010 in Istanbul. One of the inspiring aspects of the GES is that it brings together leaders from many different walks of life, all in the pursuit of a common cause: tackling problems that we have in common. Consequently each of us will make use of the GES differently. It is your job to make the GES your own. I wish to invite you to become an active and resourceful member of the GES Community, remaining engaged with us in the years to come.

If you are a business leader, ask yourself how your company—in using its core competences to do what it does best—contributes to the solution of one or more global problems. The GES is an opportunity for the global public interest perspective to receive its due recognition alongside your daily exercises in value-creation. If you are a policy maker, ask yourself how your work contributes to serving the global public interest.

The possibilities are endless. Use them and contribute to our ongoing effort to seek solutions to problems we all share. I wish us great success in this endeavor.
