"I particularly welcome the initiative of President Staffan Nilsson to organise this event because it means we have brought a bit of Brussels to Rio. Thankfully I do not mean the rain, no I am referring to the manner in which we the European Union integrates dialogue with our social partners and civil society into our decision making process. I would like to pay tribute to President Nilsson’s personal commitment to making Rio a success."
