Contribution on videocongress 20 June 2020:

Transcript of the Contribution:

Ladies and gentlemen, dear platform presidium members, representatives of the congress’ partner organizations, dear guests and internet viewers.

I deeply regret that I can’t be with you personally during this important day. Thanks to modern technology we are able meet in this way at least. However, the technology that enables internet broadcasting is not the core that tears down the walls between all of us.

What that tears down the walls is our common desire to push human knowledge forward and to share the knowledge and experience gained with all of mankind. Not in order to create wars or to do business, but in order to relieve pain and lessen suffering; to reach lasting peace in our countries, and mainly, in our souls. I am firmly convinced that the World Health Congress 2020 Prague will report on this. There is an increasing number of people waiting for such reports. There are so many of them now that the right and logic way forward is the international cooperation that has led to building the professional Platform 2020 Prague.

The World Health Congress 2020 Prague is starting in Prague today. I have the honour as the chairman of the committee of healthcare in the capital city of Prague to personally wish all the best to this welcoming session and to your work.

Warm regards from Prague.
