St Gallen Symposium


AIMA, as the India partner of the St. Gallen Symposium, participated in the 53rd edition of the Symposium held on 2nd – 3rd May 2024, at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, maintaining a longstanding association spanning over two decades. This year, AIMA was represented by Mr. Rajive Kaul, Chairman, Nicco Engineering Services Ltd, and Ms. Rekha Sethi, Director General, AIMA, who engaged in insightful discussions and gained valuable perspectives on pressing global issues. The symposium aimed to explore the changing nature of work and the dynamic relationship between different generations in the workforce. Over 1000 participants from 60 nations came together to discuss how businesses, governments, and societies can tactfully confront intensifying scarcities of natural resources, labour, capital, and energy. The deliberations were held around the central theme ‘Confronting Scarcity’; Scarcity, be it energy or food shortages, a shortage of skilled workers, climate change, or a lack of security, does not necessarily have to be negative, but can also offer opportunities for the business world. Discussions highlighted diverse perspectives, including Saudi Arabia’s aspirations to become a tourism destination, Croatia’s efforts to promote sustainable mass tourism, and Singapore’s substantial investment in a national AI strategy.

The St Gallen Symposium is an annual conference organised by students of the University of St Gallen in Switzerland. It provides a platform for intergenerational debates on economic, political, and social developments among decision-makers, with support from the St Gallen Foundation.
