Reflections by Hikmet Ersek
At 11:55 and at 42:55 in this World Economic Forum session entitled Escaping from poverty, Hikmet Ersek reflects on his experiences working in the USA and in Vienna, Austria. He explained, for example, that
- in the USA, people were asking him: What do you do / what can you do? He also said that in the USA, it was not important for people what his name was.
- in Vienna, Austria, people were asking him: Where are you from? He also explained that in Vienna, his name changed everything.
