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