The World Economic Forum (WEF), also known as Davos Peak, will begin with the opening reception at 19.00. Geoeconomic challenges of the multipolar world will be discussed in Davos

In the statement made by WEF, it was stated that Ukrainian State Leader Vladimir Zelenskiy will address the participants via video conference in the special session to be held tomorrow.

WEF officials said in a statement that no official from Russia was invited to the Forum.

Officials noted that some Russian citizens working in international organizations and international media were not prevented from participating in the Forum.

The Forum, which was last held for the 50th time in January 2020 and also known as Davos Peak, was postponed for two years in a row due to the Covid-19 outbreak, and online meetings were held as an alternative.

It is expected that 50 heads of state, 300 government representatives and approximately 2,500 global business officials will attend the Forum, which was held for the first time in history out of January.

The theme of this year’s meeting of WEF, which will end on May 26, was determined as “Date at the turning point; Government policies and business world strategies”.

“NO OFFICIAL PARTICIPATION FROM TURKEY”

European Central Bank (ECB) Leader Christine Lagarde, European Union (EU) Board Leader Ursula von der Leyen, EU Parliament Leader Roberta Metsola, Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Belgium. Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov, Colombian State Leader Ivan Duque, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis are expected to attend.

Iraqi President Barham Salih, Iraqi Kurdish Regional Administration Leader Nechirvan Barzani, Israeli President Isaac Herzog, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Qatari Emir Pir Temim bin Hamed Al Sani are among the other valuable names who are expected to attend the meeting.

“OPEN FORUM” WILL BE ORGANIZED WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THE SUMMIT

As part of the summit, a side event will be held under the title of “Open Forum”, open to the public, on May 23-26.

The event was attended by Swiss Confederation Leader Ignazio Cassis, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko, Afghan Education Institute (AIL) Senior Manager Dr. Sakena Yacoobi, Ugandan activist Vanessa Nakate and US pharmaceutical company Moderna Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Stephane Bancel will attend as speakers.

At the event, the effects of the Kovid-19 outbreak, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the role of multilateralism for peace in Europe will be discussed.

IS WEF’S PURPOSE “HEALING THE WORLD” OR “SEEKLY LOBBYING”?

Davos Summit, which is held every year with the participation of the world’s most powerful, famous and wealthy individuals, started to make an impact by turning into a forum that brings together about 3,000 world elites annually from the business world to finance, from politics to civil society. Davos has become a valuable place for business to exchange ideas and network.

While the WEF defines its aim as “improving the situation of the world”, in recent years questions have begun to rise as to whether it has fulfilled this aim.

In Europe, people’s turn to leaders who develop populist and racist pronunciations, and global trade wars raise questions about whether the scheme has accomplished its purpose.

Critics of the WEF argue that the convention’s meetings, including the Davos Peak, create a credible space for large corporations to invest money and lobby out of sight.

FORUM MEMBERSHIP CHANGES IN THE MIDDLE OF 60K AND 600K DOLLARS

A number of non-governmental organizations in Europe argue that the WEF is “totally dependent” on the nearly 1,000 companies that support its activities.

While standard membership to the WEF is announced as 60 thousand dollars (60 thousand Swiss francs), it costs 600 thousand dollars for strategic partnership membership. An extra price of 27 thousand dollars is requested to attend the Davos summit. In addition, it is noteworthy that hotel prices are very high during the hill.

There are also criticisms about the event that “the same people are called every year to talk about the same things and stay away from more than one person in the world”.

There are also those in the West who see WEF’s Davos meetings as “a family reunion of people who are disrupting the world order”.

The supporters of WEF, on the other hand, put forward the thesis that the organization fills the shortcomings of other international organizations, while on the other hand, leaders of the political and business world meet and discuss “ideals suitable for the people of the world “.

The ideas that valued at Davos, what is spoken at the table and the words given are not binding for are.
