The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Founder and Executive Chairman, Klaus Schwab, stated that he met with the Indian government delegation and several of its top business executives. According to a statement from the forum, the founder and executive chairman said, “I had the pleasure of meeting the Indian ministerial delegation and many of its top business leaders.”

“I commend the country’s decisive action on the climate case for renewables, its contribution to the global healthcare ecosystem, the focus on an economic model for women-led development, and its leadership on digital public infrastructure. India remains a bright spot amid global geoeconomics and geopolitical crises,” he added.

The World Economic Forum has a 38-year relationship with India and looks forward to continuing its collaboration with the country during its G20 presidency under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, according to a statement from the forum. According to the statement, India is advocating just and equitable growth for everybody throughout the world during its G20 chairmanship.

“India’s G20 presidency comes at a crucial time, Prime Minister Modi’s leadership is critical in this fractured world,” Schwab said.

The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2023 takes place at a time when several crises are deepening tensions and fragmenting the global landscape. The World Economic Forum (WEF) is an independent worldwide organisation dedicated to improving the status of the world by bringing together economic, governmental, intellectual, and other societal leaders to create global, regional, and industry agendas.

World leaders continue to make progress in Davos on answers to the world’s most serious challenges. Governments and businesses must provide people’s urgent and vital needs while also building the basis for a more sustainable and resilient world by the end of the decade.

The programme covers both urgent emergencies and long-term future concerns, and it helps set the stage for India’s G20 leadership.
