Davos World Economic Forum postponed


The planned World Economic Forum in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos has been postponed due to surging cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The annual meeting that had been due to take place in January has been deferred until mid-2022.

The event, a meeting point for the world's business and political leaders, has been postponed in light of continued uncertainty over the Omicron outbreak, the organisers said on Monday.

Participants will instead join a headline series of State of the World sessions bringing together global leaders online to focus on shaping solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
