London, 19 January 2018. The World Economic Forum returns to Davos this January for its annual gathering, and CNN International will be reporting live throughout this key event in the business calendar.
The theme of this year’s conference will be ‘Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World’- making the case for renewed commitment to international collaboration as a way of solving critical global challenges.
CNN’s Richard Quest, Becky Anderson, and John Defterios, alongside Fareed Zakaria and Nic Robertson, will deliver live daily coverage from the Swiss mountain town, which is transformed each year for the summit. They will be joined by a team from CNN White House Correspondents Jim Acosta, Jeff Zeleny and Abby Phillip, who will focus on the highly anticipated visit of President Donald Trump to the Forum.
CNN will have special access to politicians, world leaders, social influencers and CEOs throughout the week. A broad range of topics including migrant workers, corporate social responsibility, the role of technology in business and society, and the future of capitalism will be on the agenda.
As well as Donald Trump, France’s president Emmanuel Macron, India’s prime minister, Narenda Modi, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and King Abdullah of Jordan are among the world leaders attending the Forum, alongside singer Elton John and actor Cate Blanchett.
