Under the thematic focus "The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business" the 2014 Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum will be held in Davos, Switzerland. As an international organization for public-private partnership, the World Economic Forum will bring together specialists from industry, government and civil society to discuss trends, drivers and opportunities of global political, economic, social and technological changes.

A shift from a focus on crisis towards a strategically driven agenda within the international community, and the development of insights, initiatives and actions necessary to respond to current and emerging challenges will be the main goal of this meeting.
