World Economic Forum`s flagship event is the Annual Meeting held every year at the end of January in Davos. It got underway this year too on Jan 28. The meeting in the Swiss alpine resort brings together CEOs from the Forum`s 1000 member companies as well as selected politicians, representatives from academia, NGOs, religious leaders and the media. The discussions focus around key issues of global concern (such as international conflicts, poverty and environmental problems) and possible solutions.
