Congress 2014: daily digest, 15 August

Quotes from congress today:

Steve Cotton, ITF general secretary

“This organisation is a great one, a proud one, only because of all of you and now that you have given me the mandate to put workers first, I intend to lead this great organisation by doing just that!”

Fátima Aguado Queipo, youth secretary, CC.OO

Youth is the future? No it is the present!

Alicia Castro, ambassador for the Republic of Argentina

“Since 1998 when the ITF’s women's committee was established and we introduced quotas for women at the executive board, we have advanced and made great strides but we still know that we have to establish concrete actions.”
