The 48th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting is about to start. 70 heads of state or government will participate. More than 2,500 leaders from business, NGOs, international organisations, civil society, academia, media and the arts from over 100 countries will travel to Davos. This year’s annual meeting theme, “Creating a shared future in a fractured world”, will make a case for renewed commitment to international collaboration as a way of solving critical global challenges. With over 400 sessions, the programme is aiming at engaging leaders in a new shared narrative to improve the state of the world and address today’s political, economic and societal challenges. The World Economic Forum recently published its 13th edition of The Global Risks Report.
