It is a pleasure and honour to introduce this edition of the IP Federation’s annual review. In a departure from tradition, I feel compelled this year not to reflect on the work we have done, but to address the work ahead. More than ever, society is aware of the challenges humankind is facing. The pandemic and the urgent action needed to address climate change have required us all to consider what, collectively, we can do to overcome these challenges. The private sector’s role in addressing them is crucial. It requires collaboration and a new paradigm of thinking.
