Banga, President of the World Bank Group, and many others.

Reflecting on the global challenges underscored at last year’s Davos meeting, Borge Brende, President of the World Economic Forum, emphasized the need for innovative public-private collaboration. He stated, “At a time when global challenges require urgent solutions, innovative public-private collaboration is necessary to convert ideas into action.”

This year’s Davos meeting aims to build on the concept of ‘Rebuilding Trust.’ The agenda focuses on acting as an accelerator of cooperation, fostering deeper connections between leaders and initiatives. The overarching goal is to restore collective agency and reinforce fundamental principles of transparency, consistency, and accountability among global leaders. The theme underscores the imperative need for collaborative efforts to address pressing challenges and shape a more resilient and sustainable future.
