Davos 2013: Global Leaders to Beat the Odds at WEF
Bangalore: The World Economic Forum (WEF) will be having its 43rd Annual Meet recently in Davos, Switzerland with 'Resilent Dynamism' being the theme of this year's annual meeting. This meeting will continue till January 27.
While announcing this meeting, Mr. Klaus Schwab (WEF Founder and executive chairman) said that the world is seeing "a new reality of sudden shocks and prolonged global economic malaise, particularly in major economies experiencing economic austerity". He also mentioned, "Future growth in this new context requires dynamism - bold vision and even bolder action. Either attribute - Resilience or Dynamism - alone is insufficient, as leadership in 2013 will require both".
