FIAT/IFTA PRESIDENT RE-ELECTION SPEECH
Dear Members of FIAT/IFTA, dear observers, dear colleagues and friends,
It is with a sense of profound honour and gratitude that I begin my second term as FIAT/IFTA President. I'm also thrilled to be able to do that in this wonderful place, at a time that feels like a new beginning, with the members present here and the members following this conference from all over the globe.
Ladies and gentlemen,
Confirming the title of this conference, I think we have already seen some wonderful examples of what I would call “archives out of the box” during this conference and I believe that there’s much more to come. Some of you have been asking me over the past few days what exactly we mean by this title. Allow me to illustrate that with a little anecdote.
