i think for me and for for these nice welcome word and a warm welcome to everybody
and so you know what i am and just have a bit of a feeling who you are
can have a shorthand un how many un representatives we have in the room
and n. g. o.s
well drawn
and a red cross eyed crescent
donors
yeah and then what else academics
nice you see i mean it's really a a a a private sector of course yeah i
and kelp kelp
very interesting things in the the uh really an interesting mix which
is a a reflect also on the topic we're working on
and and then perfect where we have to pull from in order to to
make progress in to go on but in the seat happy that
a you are here and be all the work that is done um on on cash and
and that we just saw it's indeed that these experts use the seven knowledge piece
these experience have to put we brought together in order to to make progress in order to make this shift
from why not cash now how to to cash or how to do
more cage and and to explore the potential of of of cash
but also of course looking at that still existing a challenge is and how
we have these different pattern how it's used the existing
a national social protection system actually had it in
in a three long car or they use of local capacity that we had it in in haiti and
i have a another to actually challenge that i recently discovered
typically when we use existing networks when i work with the red cross we were always
so prudent about the list of of beneficial is what does all this data
happens and that we the produce that we
collect that is seven brought together
when caches actually um you spin caches is rolled out in the country
uh we do we make sure that this data
on who gets how much um leafs where
with how many people on the what kind of condition and it's it's it's secure
is just as sort of the first thought on on
that still existing challenges that um are out there
and for to address these challenges the need to come together in this kind of far and
what better platform in this regard is there out how to add and then ten cup and
it's the for uh for for the discussion it's it's the voice uh uh for cash
and i uh appreciate very much and efforts that is done
i directed by the board buttons very happy to have a a member of the board
and we have a red happy to have a person in advisory committee and
of course to feeding but also to print benefit from from from from development
from the constant a sinking and the and and and also um
the joint ventures i mean it was greatly hacks actually in this room uh last
week or the week before the first annual meeting of the grand pardon
one of their work stream as you know is in the cache beside localisation me
or beside a reducing and reporting so it's very and prominent
the the the discussion and the g. h. t. to
good human current ownership or another for our and we're
caches uh one of the subjects and it was
i think on june fifteens um there was a course or an event we had
and in rome the beginning of the months in the framework again of of the grand parking
an event on on cash so it is out there there are different for
our that that deal with the issue and all the more it's important
to maintain this very diverse uh um
yeah no shape um and to this to this topic
that's one is committed to continue investing in cash
all over it's only still about seven percent of
station when you turn a responses is cash
switzerland uh just two weeks ago it looks like we'll see if it works um
i said goodbye to one of its lost in kind and um
distribution where we uh transported swiss milk
powder to some points out there
in the world so it's the long way to go and and
of course the some of the challenges that i mentioned and have to be addressed one of them is
also stilled existing perception when we had a discussion about the milk powder in the swiss parliament
and of course uh the biggest cost uh brought up also catch and
one of the arguments was how do you control that this catches properly used
and that then again you know it's not spend for tobacco
and then and i'll call so um this perception then
and the the figures behind it didn't experience behind it still have to be
how to communicate in this regard communication um is another very important issue that
you have to um take advantage from when you're here in this kind of meetings that
as we saw in the beginning communicators each other that you use this opportunity
just try to imagine how many years of experience we have in this room
i use this day uh the uh to to me
at step each these networks that that are needed um for for for uh
to bring cash where we want to have it but it's um
supposed to be and where it's given the impact it can have a has to be as we
got i wish you were interesting and meaning challenging
and i mean mated a day of work
and really would encourage you to use this opportunity to them
