The World Economic Forum will hold its 2022 annual meeting in the Swiss resort town of Davos from May 22 to 26, reported this Friday.
The Geneva-based Forum in December postponed the annual event a month ahead of schedule, citing the difficulties of holding such an in-person conference amid the spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus.
“After all the virtual meetings that have taken place in the last two years, leaders from politics, business and civil society need to finally meet again in person,” said the Forum’s founder and president, Klaus Schwab, it’s a statement.
“We have to establish the atmosphere of trust that is really needed to accelerate collaborative action and address the many challenges we face,” he added.
The Forum will coordinate closely with the Swiss government regarding the public health situation, adding that the meeting will be held as long as the necessary conditions are in place to ensure the health and safety of the participants and the host community. .
