From calls for global unity to confronting climate change and the economic downturn, world leaders discussed an array of topics this week at the World Economic Forum. Unlike previous years when political leaders, entrepreneurs and international activists converged on Davos, Switzerland, all of the meetings took place virtually because of the pandemic.
CGTN’s Andrew Wilson begins our coverage with this report from London.
Joining the discussion:
- John Quelch is the Dean of the University of Miami’s Herbert Business School.
- Klaus Larres is a distinguished professor of History and International Affairs at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
- Paul Bledsoe is an adjunct professorial lecturer with the Center for Environmental Policy at American University.
- Changhua Wu is the Executive Director of the Professional Association for China’s Environment.
