Luiz Alberto Küster undertands ITKF needs to turn to the future

Emphasizing the need for speedy information, Professor Luiz Alberto Küster, ITKF general secretary, predicts that the Global Seminar 2020 will definitely project the entity into the digital age.

“I believe that, in the future, 2020 will be remembered as the year that printed a series of innovations in the habits and behaviors of our civilization. Far beyond suffering, pain and any socioeconomic damage caused by the pandemic, innovations will certainly be a positive legacy. The Virtual Global Seminar will be a historic landmark of changes in the management of our entity. We have no time to waste, we are in a hurry to align our policies and redirect the ITKF into the future”, said Küster.
