“Under the theme ‘Working Together, Restoring Trust’, the 2022 Annual Meeting will be the first global in-person leadership event since the start of the pandemic,” the WEF said in a statement posted on its website.
The meeting will give world leaders the opportunity to take stock of the state of the world and shape partnerships and policies for the crucial period ahead, the WEF said. Due to the appearance of the Omicron variant, the WEF has postponed its 2022 annual meeting, originally scheduled for January 17-21.
