Best Wishes 2021!

The IIR wishes you all the best for the new year!

Wishing you all the best for the new year!


COVID-19 marked the year 2020 and is likely to have an impact in 2021. The consequences for everyone and for all global activity, including IIR activity, are considerable. I hope that 2021 will become a more normal and happy year again for all those who have been affected personally, in their families and among their friends.


The hope of mass vaccination is a reason for optimism. Optimism not only for the future health of all, but also for the recognition of the importance of refrigeration for health. Thus, the success of vaccine distribution will depend closely on the cold chains to be put in place. This is a challenge for the whole world. We will take our share of the responsibility!


I wish you all a Happy New Year 2021 and good health.

Director General of the IIR
