WEF counting on holding Davos meeting in Singapore in August

GENEVA (BLOOMBERG) – The World Economic Forum (WEF) is sticking with its plan to hold the 2021 meeting in Singapore, according to newspaper Schweiz am Wochenende.

“We’re definitely counting on holding it Aug 17 to 20,” the paper quoted WEF managing director Alois Zwinggi as saying.

There will be roughly 1,000 participants, he added.

The meeting, typically held in the Swiss ski report of Davos each January, was postponed and relocated due to the pandemic.

The plan is to return to the Alps for a large event in 2022.

“Davos is and remains our home,” Mr Zwinggi said.
