Summer interview 2013 – Guy Ryder, Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO)

August 2013


What are you working on this summer?

I am keeping the Reform process moving forward at the ILO.

What are your holiday plans?

I am planning to go to Provence, in the South of France. On the agenda: sunshine, family and tranquillity.

What do take the opportunity to do in Geneva during the summer?

I especially enjoy the long warm evenings: reading and swimming.

Do you have a place you really love, in Geneva or in the surrounding area?

There is a small lakeside beach that I really like (but I won't tell you which one...)

How about a summer book recommendation for our readers?

"The Man Who Loved Dogs", by Leonardo Padura.

And a music?

"Wrecking Ball" by Bruce Springsteen. This is his best CD for some time and an album for our times.
