The "Davos Forum", which brings together the leaders of the world's political and business world, will open in Switzerland for the first time in two years, and opinions will be exchanged focusing on the response to the situation in Ukraine.

The World Economic Forum's annual meeting, known as the "Davos Conference," is held annually in Davos, eastern Switzerland, but last year it was shelved due to the effects of the new coronavirus and was held face-to-face for the first time in two years.

The main theme of this time, with the participation of about 2,500 leaders such as government officials and business owners from each country, is the response to the situation in Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will give an online speech on the 23rd, and Foreign Minister Kreva will participate in the discussion directly on the 25th.

On the other hand, participation from Russia is not allowed.

In an interview with NHK, World Economic Forum Governor Børge Brende said, "At this conference, we will discuss with Ukrainian leaders how we can contribute to the reconstruction. I look forward to playing an active role. "

The conference will be held until the 26th of this month to discuss the growing problems of inflation and food shortages in each country.
