World Economic Forum (WEF) is an annual international conference that brings together leaders from various sectors, including government, business, academia, and civil society.
The international non-governmental organization was formed in 1971, with aim to provide a platform for global leaders to engage in discussions about pressing economic, social, and political issues.
The WEF’s flagship event is held each year in Davos, Switzerland, and it attracts a diverse group of participants, including heads of state, business executives, economists, and thought leaders. The discussions at the forum cover a wide range of topics, such as economic development, environmental sustainability, technology, and global governance.
One of the unique features of the WEF is its focus on public-private cooperation and the belief that collaborative efforts between different stakeholders can lead to innovative solutions for complex global challenges. In addition to the annual meeting in Davos, the WEF organizes regional meetings and initiatives throughout the year to address specific issues and foster dialogue.
