*World Economic Forum returns to Davos after two-year absence
*World leaders to meet face to face to discuss challenges and aspirations
After a gap of two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, the World Economic Forum in Davos returns to hold its annual meetings from Sunday until Thursday.
His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani is participating in the forum's work, based on Qatar's keenness to interact and attend global events, discussions and dialogues that address contemporary issues and the international community's political, economic and security concerns, among others.
His Highness the Amir will deliver a speech before the global forum, to emphasise Qatar's stances and its consistent policies towards the issues and files listed on the agenda of the new session of the forum, which will be attended this year by more than 50 heads of state and government, in addition to some 1,250 private sector leaders, civil society organisations, innovators and technology pioneers, to address global issues and find solutions to the most pressing international challenges, including the ongoing pandemic, the war in Ukraine, geo-economic shocks and climate change.
The Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, explained that after all the virtual meetings of the forum during the past two years, political leaders, economic actors, businessmen and civil society must meet again face to face, pointing out that the forum includes, as usual in previous forums, speeches by a number of leaders in addition to seminars with businessmen, the government sector, and prominent international figures.
In addition, the forum organisers say that the new Davos session is a starting point for a new era of responsibility and global co-operation, during which the focus will be on developing strategies for influence, building new horizons, creating viable future scenarios, and providing ambitious solutions to the largest issues in the world, noting that the agenda includes recovering from the pandemic, tackling climate change, building a better future for work, accelerating stakeholder capital, and harnessing Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies.Last updated: May 21 2022 11:08 PM
