” A global leadership summit is of crucial importance to address how we can recover together. The Special Annual Meeting 2021 will be a place for leaders from business, government and civil society to meet in person for the first time since the start of the global pandemic. Public-private cooperation is needed more than ever to rebuild trust and address the fault lines that emerged in 2020. ”

The World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. Established in 1971 as a not-for-profit foundation and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, it is independent, impartial and not tied to any special interests.

In the early 1970s, the Cold War between United States and Russia had split the world while the Vietnam war split America.  With a growing oil crisis in 1970s, a German economics professor and engineer founded the World Economic Forum.

The World Economic Forum was founded by Professor Klaus Schwab, an engineer and economist in 1971. He created the “stakeholder theory” which means that company should serve all its stakeholders including employees, suppliers, and the community it is part, and not just only its shareholders.  The vision for this socially responsible “stakeholder capitalism” became the guiding principle of the World Economic Forum.

He chose Davos as the home for the annual meeting for the escape from the everyday that the mountains represent in Swiss and German culture.  In 2020, the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland held its 50th annual meeting.
