After its absence for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos returns to hold its annual meetings in the mountain resort of Davos, Switzerland, from Sunday, until next Thursday.
His Highness the Amir of State of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani will be participating in the forum, based on Qatar’s keenness to attend global events, discussions and dialogues that address contemporary issues and the international community’s political, economic and security concerns, among others.
HH the Amir will deliver a speech before the global economic forum, to emphasize the stances of Qatar 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 organizations, innovators and technology pioneers, to address global issues and find solutions to the most pressing international challenges, including the ongoing global 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 cooperation, 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.
