The World Economic Forum (WEF) is to take place in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos next year on January 17 to 21, reverting to an in-person meeting of world and business leaders, organizers said on Thursday, September 16.

The meeting will focus on accelerating stakeholder capitalism, harnessing the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and ensuring a more inclusive future of work, WEF organizers said in a statement.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced organizers last year to shift the WEF annual meeting to Singapore and then cancel it altogether, raising questions over whether the high-profile event would return to Switzerland at all. – Rappler.com
