Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina traveled to the Swiss town of Davos Sunday to participate in the 48th meeting of the World Economic Forum, whose slogan is “Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World.”
The event brings together global leaders to discuss their visions for a shared design, cooperation and creation of a better world.
Medina is one of six Latin American leaders invited to the 48th celebration of this annual event, which starts Tuesday 23rd and ends Friday 26th January.
The meeting will cover issues affecting the global agenda such as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
On the business and trade front, representatives will discuss the so-called fourth industrial revolution and how industries and governments can adapt. A focus on the future will highlight new ideas, innovations and discoveries with global impact.
The Davos forum also promotes public-private sector engagement; an area in which the Dominican government says it hopes to highlight several achievements.
According to the Dominican Republic presidency, in its five years of government the Medina administration has prioritized dialogue with the private sector as a way of creating prosperity by promoting growth and generating trust among business leaders.
