The World Economic Forum: Davos 2023

On the 16th of January The World Economic Forum returned to Davos with a record attendance of business and government leaders. More than 600 CEOs; 51 heads of state; 56 finance ministers, 19 central bank governors, 30 trade ministers and 35 foreign ministers attended WEF! 

This year's theme, 'Cooperation in a Fragmented World,' was a nod to the tectonic shift in global markets and political relationships that has occurred since the pandemic. Once regarded as a cheerleader for globalization, the global elite met against a backdrop of protectionism, war and deepening ideological divides. Increasing interest rates and a cost of living crisis also threatened to divert attention. Climate change topped the WEF's survey of global risk and energy company executives will mixed with climate activists and environment ministers at the forum.

Other themes discussed included the cost of living, a tight labour market, natural disasters and extreme weather events, how to prevent a global recession in 2023, the resurgence of COVID infections in many countries, an energy crunch and the looming first anniversary of Russia's war in Ukraine.
