About The Program

Each year, a World Economic Forum is held in Davos, Switzerland. In 2020 the theme of the Forum, which attracts the most significant world leaders in business and industry, is Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  This theme was selected many in the “Global-Know” believe the 21st Century begins a new era for global business and industry.
