  • Anticipating the Unexpected - IATA AVSEC World – Keynote Speech

    Geneva, Switzerland
    October 26, 2005

    Thank you, Gunther, for your kind introduction. It is a great pleasure to be among so many distinguished leaders, and I am honored that IATA has asked me to address you today.

    Gatherings like this remind each of us how connected we are, despite the separation of national boundaries. We know from recent experience that we are not working alone in our efforts to diminish terrorism, the impact of natural disasters, and our exposure to new dangerous flus. We are strengthened by colleagues and partners around the world.
