The welcome address was delivered through a very articulate and affluent speech from Dr. Linus Von Castelmur, the Swiss ambassador to India and Bhutan.

Dr. Norbert Klapper, Group CEO of Rieter spoke about the company's achievements in its 220 years of existence and its thrust on innovation led by three promising areas; Listen to the customer; make technology available and nurture innovation spirits.

Dr. Klapper further added that this is what makes Rieter an innovation leader in short staple spinning.

Mr. Peter Anderegg, a Swiss innovation expert, spoke on the small country's 'Innovation Power' and its global position in terms of innovation with future challenges and opportunities.
