The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting is scheduled for 16–20 January 2023 in Davos.
The theme for this year’s WEF Annual Meeting is “Cooperation in a Fragmented World” which ties in with India’s G20 theme “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or “One Earth, One Family, One Future.” As we assume presidency, India seeks to play an essential role by finding pragmatic global solutions for the well-being of all.
India has emerged as a resilient, innovative and agile nation, transforming itself into the world's most attractive investment destination. India received the highest annual Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows of $ 84 bn in FY 21-22 signalling the confidence of global investors.
India’s presence in Davos will solidify its position as a strong, resilient economy, acting as a diplomatic powerhouse at the global stage.
India has amplified its presence in this year’s Davos with three lounges:
The focal point for all G2B and B2B networking and engagements. The lounge will showcase India's growth story, its transforming infrastructure landscape, rising digitalisation and growing startup ecosystem, the country’s credentials as a top investment destination.
India Sustainability Lounge
Displaying India's ten-year success story in combatting climate change, the lounge will focus on the country's futuristic goals to become carbon neutral and achieve net zero emissions by 2070. We will also showcase technologies that India aims to utilise to reduce the carbon intensity of its economy by less than 45 percent by 2030.
India Inclusivity Lounge
India's inclusive growth story represents the market opportunities for traditional businesses and artisans, enabling buyer-seller connections.
This lounge will also represent the textiles sector of the country. India is the 6th largest exporter of textiles, and the lounge will showcase a wide array of its products. Additionally, it will showcase the transformational successes of India's One District One Product (ODOP) initiative.
We look forward to seeing you there!
