Excellencies, Distinguished Panelists, Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a pleasure to be with you again in Davos.
This is my second visit as Secretary-General, and I must say that the mood is very different from the optimistic spirit of the past.
I've been calling this the year of multiple crises.
Economies are in trouble.
Trust in business and in markets has eroded.
People everywhere worry about their jobs and struggle to survive.
Yet amid these difficulties, we face another crisis.
