Day 1 of St.Gallen symposium ended with Japan dinner. It began with welcome remarks & some opening statements by Lord Griffths  among others. I found the keynote address by the mayor of Mogadishu very interesting as well as opening remarks by the Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey.

CLagarde)One on one: investigative interview with C. Lagarde of IMF was as always insightful. After that, I was busy preparing for the anniversary panel scheduled for the evening. We went over details & graphics/ drawings we incorporated into the panel.

After the meeting with speakers & panelists, I spent few hours going over my part at the panel. I had to remember many things & put my notes together.

Then the panel started. It started a bit slow, but it picked up the heat soon. It was so much fun to moderate the panel where there was a range of views. We could have gone on another half an hour easily,but we stopped the panel to go on to the award ceremony.

Day 1 was over & I could enjoy wine!
