2016: A year of co-operative meetings

Dec 16, 2016

Dear colleagues,

What an exceptional year we have just had! 2016 saw the International Co-operative Alliance significantly strengthen its position. We experienced the full power of the words Unite, Promote and Develop. I believe that this would be a good time to give you a first full update.

The attached document provides a sketch of that first year, during which we all witnessed the tremendous progress made by the co-operative Movement, starting with our meeting in Antalya in November 2015, and up until the B20, which took place more than a year after that key event.

I invite you to peruse this annual review. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for 2017, in the hopes that all of your expectations come to pass, shaped by co-operation, faith and optimism.

I hope you enjoy this overview.

With my deepest co-operative appreciation!
