May to meet Trump at Davos summit

President Trump and Melania visit the Forbidden City with China’s President Xi Jinping and China’s First Lady Peng Liyuan

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the world has finally started to take note of India and its vast potential as a market.

The theme of the meeting, spread over 400 sessions, would be "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World". There will be 8 heads of state or government from the Arab world at the four-day meeting, which starts on Tuesday.

Members of Team South Africa heading to the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, next week are feeling optimistic about the country's fortunes for the coming year. He will also meet Swiss President Alain Berset. Prime Minister Modi's visit will be of brief 24 hours and focused, said MEA secretary (Economic Relations) Vijay Gokhale.

Since the first incarnation of what is now the World Economic Forum (WEF) in 1971, the list of high-profile attendants, scope and ambitions at the event in Davos, Switzerland has grown considerably.

USA president Donald Trump and King Abdullah of Jordan are among 28 heads of state that will be at the event, held in the Swiss town of Davos since 1971 - the same year that the UAE was created.

"To try to banish the president of the United States from visiting the UK when he's had trips to France, to Germany, to Japan, to China, is, I think, for the Labour party extremely odd", Johnson said.

The forum is expected to be held between January 23 and 26 and is set to attract 2,500 participants, including Donald Trump, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron and many more.

Protests are expected to continue ahead of next week's economic summit where business leaders and finance ministers are expected to gather to discuss the global economy.

According to officials, PM Modi will also talk about numerous steps they have taken to make it easier to do business in India, check corruption, clamp down on black money, streamline taxation and boost sustainable growth. He was speaking in an interview to a private news channel.

He will speak on the power of economic narratives and how policymakers can address the challenges of the 21st century.

I am not all that sure he will be welcomed with open arms.
