World Economic Forum 2016, interview with Giampaolo Lo Conte

Generico - Multiargomento > Recently awarded with an honorary degree in Finance, baron Giampaolo Lo Conte was one of the Italians attending the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland.

It’s pointless to dwell on the common clichés that have filled the newspapers for the last years, or even decades: brain drains, family holdings system, bureaucracies, and so on.
