Davos forum of power brokers, business leaders to draw 2,500
GENEVA — Most European countries are sending their heads of state or government to this month’s gathering of world leaders and power brokers in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, while high-level delegations are expected from China, the United States, Japan and Russia.
Organizers of the World Economic Forum say the largest-ever number of participants — more than 2,500 — will attend the January 21-24 forum, including 300 heads of state, heads of government and government members, along with 1,500 business leaders from more than 140 countries.
The forum said Tuesday there will be “significant participation from all crisis-hit areas in the world.” It said a number of African heads of state, most of the leaders from Asean countries and high-level delegations from key Latin American countries also will attend.
