In the short term, the annual Davos Report considered economic confrontations and local political polarization as the most important risks in 2020, and the 100-page report warns that geopolitical unrest and the decline of international and multilateral trends pose a threat to everyone's ability to address sensitive global risks Shared. He believed that in the absence of urgent attention to address social divisions and spur sustainable economic growth, leaders would not be able to address threats posed by climate or biodiversity-related crises.
The report expected that in 2020 there will be a world of worsening local and international divisions and an economic slowdown, considering that the geopolitical tensions push us towards a unidirectional world that lacks stability and witnesses quarrels between the major powers, at a time when corporate and government leaders must focus urgently on working together to face common risks .
In parallel with the launch of the annual report in London, the President of the World Economic Forum, Bourgete Brande, said: “The political scene suffers from polarization, at a time when sea levels are rising and fires are being caused by the climate (crisis). This year, world leaders should work with all sectors of society to reform and revitalize their cooperation systems, not just for short-term benefits, but to address the deep risks we face. ”
