SIX Brennpunkt 2017

SIX Brennpunkt 2017

At the invitation of SIX, high-profile guests from business and politics discussed this year's topic "world order in upheaval" on 21 June 2017.

Romeo Lacher, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SIX, started off a thoroughly successful evening in the new ConventionPoint by inviting those present to a tour of the new Swiss Finance Museum in his opening speech. Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former NATO Secretary General, gave a talk on the subject of "A new turning point for security and stability?", while Elmar Brok, former Chair of the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs, addressed in his speech the topic "Is Europe in a tight spot? Current challenges facing foreign and security policy." The talks gave rise to additional interesting questions and provided the around 180 invited guests with exciting theories and sound information, which made for lively discussion in the podium debate that followed. After a summary and outlook by SIX Group CEO Urs Rüegsegger, the stand-up dinner afterwards saw further intense discussion on an informal basis.
