Guten Morgan, and welcome once again to Salzburg, where the clouds have descended upon the city, but inside the Schloss Leopoldskron the mood is decidely bouyant. Delegates ended yesterday's session with the first plenary discussion, and did not hesitate to get stuck straight in to debate. Photo: Schloss Leopoldskron / Julia Day

The 80 plus participants here were obviously raring to begin swapping opinion. And an evening's sleep to shake off the jet-lag seems to have boosted that feeling.

We are in for a busy and rich day with roundatable discussions and themed panels covering issues from innovation, trade and environmental sustainabilty to equity, gender, governance and policy processes.
