The World Economic Forum has postponed its annual meeting, which was scheduled to be held in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos next January, to mid-2022.
A month before the meeting of world politicians and businessmen in Davos, the Swiss ski resort, organizers said They said they had decided to postpone the meeting in light of the continuing uncertainty surrounding the spread of the new mutated Omicron from the Coronavirus and added that they had decided to organize it in "early summer".
The World Economic Forum said: "The current epidemiological conditions make it very difficult to organize a global meeting with physical attendance. The preparations were guided by expert advice and benefited from close cooperation with the Swiss government at all levels."
"Despite the strict health protocol, Omicron's ability to spread and its impact on travel and movement made the cancellation necessary," he added.
The "Davos" forum, which in the past brought together about three thousand businessmen, political thinkers and state leaders, was canceled last year due to Covid-19.
Switzerland is tightening Covid-19 restrictions, but has not reached, so far, the announcement of a stricter partial closure.
The forum had said in September 2021 that next year's meeting would focus on accelerating stakeholder capitalism, harnessing the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and ensuring a more inclusive future of work.
