The forum, according to Wikipedia brings together “top business leaders, international political leaders, selected intellectuals and journalists to discuss the most pressing issues facing the world including health and the environment.”
So what will a senior executive at an Indian outsourcing service provider be doing there?
BG says, having attended the WEF for several years now he is interested so see what new themes and ideas will emerge from this global gathering.
“WEF is a great discussion platform for business leaders and politicians to assess and debate the state of the world’s economy,” he says.
BG says that this year’s theme is ‘Improve the state of the world – rethink, redesign, rebuild’ and he wants to see what the role of technology in the process of regeneration.
“In particular, I expect to see the themes of digital networking, global talent, and sustainability play a key role in the forum’s dialogues. Additionally, it will be interesting to examine the contribution emerging markets, such as India, China and Latin America, will make towards the further growth of the global economy, especially given their increasing strength and importance.”
