As an official partner of the WEF, Audi has the opportunity to demonstrate our ‘Vorsprung DurchTechnik’ philosophy to these opinion leaders. It is a privilege for Audi India to host some of India’s most prominent leaders at the exclusive Audi Ice Experience in Davos and provide them with an exclusive drive of the Audi A8 and Audi S4 Avant. Since 1987 Audi has been partnering with the World Economic Forum with a fleet of vehicles. This year too the Forum is attaching particular importance to minimizing the carbon dioxide emissions,” said Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India.
Speaking about WEC, Audi Chairman Rupert Stadler says, “This is the only way that Europe can get back to economic growth and stability. For me it means a growing economy that is more robust and less crisis-prone than we are experiencing at present. There has already been important reforms, which called for steely determination and enormous political willpower to institute. The major challenge now is to see those reforms through. Therefore I believe the dialog between individuals, governments, and business is hugely important.”
