2008: Urs Zollinger moderated the annual retreat for Swiss representatives on the boards of multilateral development banks.
In December 2008, Urs Zollinger moderated a two-day annual retreat for Swiss representatives on the boards of the World Bank and the African, Asian and Inter-American Development Banks as well as other Swiss government officials dealing with the multilateral development banks. The retreat was jointly organised by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). It provided an opportunity to review 2008, discuss global challenges such as the financial crisis, and identify key priorities for 2009. Contact: Urs Zollinger
