Insights to mega trends & more! – In light of the Annual Meeting 2023's theme "Cooperation in a Fragmented World", the Consulate of Switzerland, Swissnex in Japan hosted the Davos Debriefing to offer a window to the World Economic Forum’s famous stage in the Swiss alps where mega trends and solutions were discussed. Makiko Eda, Chief Representative Officer of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Japan set the tone by presenting a brief history of the WEF and an overview of the Annual Meeting in Davos 2023, where different challenges faced by the world were addressed such as energy and food crises, high inflation and low growth economy, industry headwinds, social vulnerabilities, and geopolitical risks. These challenges impacted most of the discussions during the 480 sessions given by 6 key themes at the WEF. – A wonderful audience thoroughly engaged with the panelists asking thought-provoking and in-depth questions.
