Andras VEDRES, The IFIA President’s address to the 7th International Exhibition of Inventions
Dear Honorable Guests, dear Inventors,
I offer one’s heartiest best wishes to you in the name of the IFIA members which are inventors’ organizations from 88 countries. I wish to you that enjoy the 7th International Exhibition of Inventions which is greatest innovation forum of the world.
Let me cite the IFIA motto: “There is no prosperity without innovation, no innovation without inventions and there are no inventions without inventors”. Now I clarify this by an example. All of us are sitting a car which is the world economy. The direction of our car must be toward the prosperity. At the steering wheel there are our politicians as the Barack Obama, Hu-Csintao, Angela Merkel, or Vlagyimir Putyin and others. They drive some correctly and sometimes with mistakes.The fuel is money. There is the fuel into a virtual petrol tank which is the bank system.
Therefore the banks wish to control the running of our car. But what is the engine of this car representing the world economy? The answer is simple, we, the inventors are the engine. We, the inventors can only create mew and new solutions producing conditions for supply more food, more energy and better health for everybody namely producing force for the world economy.
Just there is a problem. Our car is old type one; it is invented in the last Century. Certainly the world economy is non up-to-date. So the world economy is non efficient. For that reason the good part of the inventors’ work is wasted.
According to my opinion this is the main reason of global economy crisis. Consequently our task is to work out a new world economy system which will better utilize force of the inventors.
I know well that the China gives a good example of the economical growing. Who are standing behind of these successes? The answer is simple: you the Chinese inventors. You the Chinese inventors can give the conditions of your colossal technological progress. The IFIA is very proud of you.
Finally, I strongly believe that work of the inventors will let the world fly to the general prosperity. So the inventors of the world unite and change the world!
