The 38th St. Gallen Symposium was held on the campus of the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland May 15-17.

The symposium, organized by the International Students' Committee (ISC), brought together 600 decision-makers and 200 students from 60 countries with an aim of creating "a neutral platform for constructive dialogue between generations."

At the symposium, fundamental questions were asked about management and the relationship between the economy, politics and society. In the context of this year's general topic, Global Capitalism-Local Values, issues such as challenges on global stock markets, tensions between capitalist structures and local values, and the meaning of mobility for the global economy were debated. Among the speakers were Pascal Couchepin, president of Switzerland; Heinz Fischer, president of Austria; Christine Lagarde, French minister for economy, finance and employment; Josef Ackermann, chairman of Deutsche Bank, and Martin Wolf, associate editor and chief economics commentator at The Financial Times.
