DAVOS – The latest edition of the World Economic Forum kicked off Monday in Davos, Switzerland.

The village in the Swiss Alps has been transformed into a glittering venue for the four-day confab, which is said to aim to make the world a better place. The event will resume in person after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which also delayed this year’s gathering from its usual winter date.

Thousands of business leaders, government officials and other VIPs filled the conference venue to mingle and listen to panel discussions on issues such as sustainability, climate change and the war between Russia and Ukraine.

Attendees will also visit nearby pavilions on Davos’ main street, set up by companies including Intel, Accenture and Facebook owner Meta.

One of the main attractions on opening day is a virtual keynote speech by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. A sizeable Ukrainian government delegation is also present in person and is arguing for more Western support in the country’s fight against Russia.
