Dr Fahim Kibria, Secretary General and Chief Marketing Officer of World Marketing Summit Group, delivered a personal, recorded message from Professor Dr. Philip Kotler to delegates of the WMSM 2013 emphasizing, "The World Marketing Summit has as its purpose the development of solutions to the problems of poverty, hunger, pollution, violence and social disorder."

Founder of the World CSR Day, Dr. R.L. Bhatia set the tone for an innovative summit by with an interactive presentation questioning the order of the 3Ps in marketing - Product, Profit, Purpose. "People forget in forty minutes, so do we decide to donate and forget or create, share and grow sustainably? The human mind is capable of contributing value, making a difference and if we tell ourselves to make a positive difference 3 times a day, it becomes a habit. I strongly believe that combining Vision with Action can change the world."

H.E. Christian Rehren, Ambassador, Embassy of Chile, highlighted the catalytic power of women as consumers and agents of change in the family. "We need empowered citizens, not just vocal, concerned consumers. Social equality and a stable nation is the result of just and equitable distribution of wealth. Our wealth has gone towards addressing the 8 United Nations Millennium Development Goals,' particularly MDG 6 to combating HIV, Malaria and other diseases in Chile. We should always strive to imagine, and ask "Why not? From Chile's perspective, marketing a country or destination is equally about building a just and equitable society, as much as building thriving business and good infrastructure."

The Honorable Minister of Higher Education Namibia, Dr David Namwandi, provided a Tour de Force ending to the opening session stating, "It's our duty to wipe away the tears of our brothers and sisters going through poverty. Poverty is due to a lack of love and it is our duty and responsibility as marketers, to be agents of positive change and social equalizer. Do good to the world and the world will do good for you."

The opening day of the Summit saw over 600 delegates from over 70 countries participating in sessions dedicated to addressing MDG 1 "Eradicating Extreme Poverty and Hunger" and MDG 2 "Achieving Universal Primary Education," with speakers including Rajesh Chakrabarti, Chief Innovation Officer of Reliance ADA Group, India, Sara Ismail Mohamed, CEO, Al Bashayer Investment Company, UAE, John D. Chacko, CEO of LeapED Services, Malaysia and William Kwende, Chairman of Agritech Group, Bukina Faso.

The programme for tomorrow will discuss MDG 4 "Reduce Child Mortality," MDG 5 "Improve Maternal Health" and MDG 6 "Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria & other diseases."
