Guy Palmorin, President of the Swiss Confederation, said that while we are not out of the shadow of the pandemic yet, we must take a long-term view and consider the future and other challenges beyond the pandemic. Palmoran said the second decade of the 21st century should be even more brilliant if all sectors of politics, business and society work together to adopt more sustainable growth.

"Although we are now divided by walls, Windows, computer screens and even borders, our hearts are connected," says Platon, a public atlas photographer and founder. "Empathy" is how we get out of the current COVID-19 crisis. Empathy is not only about empathizing with others, but also about opening our hearts and uniting with others when we are lost.

Schild Schwab, chairman and co-founder of the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, said the Crystal Awards date back to 1995. The Schwab's believe that arts and cultural leadership can change the world, help people find new perspectives and ways of looking at problems, and build a vision for the future together.

In his mind, success is about improving the lives of as many people as possible.

2021 Crystal Award winner, photographer and photojournalist Sebastia?

The most critical and important quality of the human species is modesty.

Responding to the COVID-19 crisis

At the start of the meeting, Li Xin, vice president of Caixin Media, recalled that at this time last year, the winter Davos participants were all focused on the situation in Wuhan, and at that time they had no idea how long the epidemic would last. Today, we have been fighting against the epidemic for one year. We are looking forward to hearing from all of you at this meeting about the experience of fighting the epidemic around the world.

New Zealand's foreign minister Nanaya? Mahuta said that as we look ahead to 2021, New Zealand will continue to remain vigilant, firmly implement quarantine measures, and strengthen vaccination campaigns to raise public awareness. In addition, an important job of the government is to promote economic recovery, which is important for people's livelihoods.

Shobana Kamineni, executive vice president of Apollo Hospital Enterprise, said the success of our COVID-19 response will be judged by whether we pass the problem on to the next generation. At present, we see global concerns about the second and third waves of the epidemic. At this moment, we need to be more innovative, enhance cooperation and continue to work together to tackle the epidemic.

The international committee of the Red Cross President Peter Maurer, points out that the new epidemic overturned our original health systems, from a short-term perspective, we need to deal with the new crown pneumonia outbreak, but from a long-term point of view, we must enhance the toughness of the health system and inclusive, only in this way can we have the confidence to deal with crisis that may occur in the future.

Gong Yingying, founder, CEO and chairman of Yidu Cloud Technology Co LTD, pointed out that when it comes to vaccination, it is necessary to plan in advance considering the shelf life and vaccination cycle of vaccines.

? Restoring economic growth

Gideon Rachman, deputy editor and chief foreign affairs commentator of the Financial Times, who is hosting the event, said that the conference, which brings together leaders from the public and private sectors from India, Russia, Japan, Singapore and other countries, will review their countries' policies over the past year. And offer suggestions and insights for economic recovery in 2021.

Andrey L. Kostin, President and Chairman of the Management Board of VTB Bank, said the pandemic has accelerated the digitalization process globally. Digitalization does bring us convenience: telecommuting can save office space and commuting time, but it also introduces new risks, such as investment bubbles due to speculative expectations of digital companies.

Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said Japan's economy had been greatly affected by the pandemic and had recovered somewhat in the third quarter, but the second wave of the pandemic hit again. In order to avoid the increase of unemployment rate and the failure of enterprises, the government adopted fiscal policy to provide support and liquidity to the banking system to stabilize the market and maintain a high employment rate, which eventually made the unemployment rate stable at around 3%.

India's Minister for Women and Child Development, Smriti Zubin Irani, said public-private partnerships have played a huge role in vaccine production in India and that it is not enough to rely on government or industry alone to meet the huge demand for vaccines. On top of that, India is also trying to protect its people and provide them with services through technology, such as digital literacy and skills training for its workforce.

? To treat Alzheimer's disease

Andrea Pfeifer, chief executive of AC Immune, notes that research into Alzheimer's disease is shifting from how to treat the brain that is already damaged to how to prevent damage to the brain. This means that it may be possible to prevent Alzheimer's disease at all. Such information gives us great confidence, and we in the medical profession need to convey this confidence to the public.

According to George Vradenburg III, co-founder and chairman of the nonprofit UsAgainstAlzheimer's, the incubation period for Alzheimer's has been found to be as long as 20 years, which means we have a longer window to stop the disease from destroying our brains. We need new global institutions, new treatments and methods, and a recognition of the importance of innovation and speed.
