LANSING — State Rep. Jewell Jones (D-Inkster) is proud to announce that he will attend and participate in the St. Gallen Symposium, taking place May 3-5 in St. Gallen, Switzerland. The event, now in its 47th year, brings together established and emerging leaders in the areas of business, politics and society.

“It is a delightful honor to be invited to participate in such a prestigious event,” Jones said. “I look forward to meeting people from around the world and bringing something to the table as we discuss a serious global issue.”

The theme of this year’s symposium is “The Dilemma of Disruption,” focusing on changes to established political systems and business structures, the potential benefits and harms of radical change and to what degree change will continue or accelerate in the years to come.
