On Monday, Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi delivers a special address at the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Davos Agenda. Every year the WEF is held at the Swiss ski resort of Davos. However, this year it has been postponed.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event is being held virtually from January 12-21. A week-long online event is held instead to decide on the talking points for the annual meeting scheduled in the summer. According to the WEF website, at 1600 hours Central European Time (CET) or 8:30 pm IST the address is scheduled to take place.
Along with PM Modi, various other world leaders will deliver “State of the World” special addresses including Japan’s Prime Minister Kishida Fumio, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Nigeria’s Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, and US Treasury Secretary Janet L. Yellen.
The summit will include many other governments and business leaders, international organizations, and civil society together to share their insight, outlook, and plants related to the most urgent global issues like climate change, vaccine equality, and social contacts.
