Geneva, Jan 11 (Prensa Latina) The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, plans to examine THE growing discontent over globalization, one of the organizers of the event, German Klaus Schwab, confirmed today.
The meeting, to be held from January 17 to 20, will be attended by over 3,000 economic and political leaders from almost 100 countries, the official announced at a press conference.
The main issue of the 47th edition of the WEF is 'receptive and responsible leadership,' stated Schwab, one of the founders of the meeting, whose analyzes often generate sharp anti-capitalist and anti-neoliberal criticism from civil society.
He also informed that Chinese President Xi Jinping will deliver the WEF opening speech, which he considers 'significant in many respects.'
From the geopolitical point of view and in the conditions of a multipolar world, the role of China in responsive and responsible leadership is important, he stated.
The main interest of the meeting will be the unprecedented Chinese delegation, led by Xi Jinping, he estimated.
