The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, where celebrities from the world’s political and business circles gather together to discuss global issues such as the war between Ukraine and Russia, entered the schedule for 4 nights and 5 days starting today.
It is called the ‘Davos Forum’ held in Davos, Switzerland, and protests against the forum were also held.

From the train station in Davos, Switzerland’s ski resort, to the site of the World Economic Forum.
The shouts of protesters against the forum are everywhere.
It is also called the ‘Davos Forum’ held in Davos, and this year’s theme is ‘Cooperation in a Divided World’.
It was held at the end of January every year, but in 2021, the event was canceled due to the Corona 19 pandemic, and last year it was held in May, but this time, after 3 years, it went back to the original January face-to-face event.
Protesters criticized the forum event itself as the height of hypocrisy.
[필 화이트 / 포럼 반대 시위 참여 영국인 : 우리는 사회를 부식시키는 세계의 부의 불평등 수준을 정말 줄이고 싶습니다.]
[클라우디오 베른하르트 / 포럼 반대 시위 참여 스위스인 : 제 메시지는 우리의 지구를 더럽히지 말라는 것입니다. 엄청난 악영향이 있기 때문에 사회를 어지럽히지 말라는 것입니다.]
Buildings destroyed beyond recognition, bombs piled up like mountains.
In the middle of Davos, various videos condemning Russia’s war crimes invading Ukraine were also displayed.
[스비틀라나 그리첸코 / 우크라이나 전시장 관계자 : 우리는 지금 벌어지고 있는 끔찍한 전쟁에서, 우리 국민이 무엇을 하고 있는지 보여주고 싶습니다. 국제 사회에 눈을 돌려 우리가 필요로 하는 도움을 요청하고 싶습니다.]
The Davos Forum, which was established in 1971, is expected to be held for the 53rd time this year, and it is expected to deal with security issues such as the war in Ukraine, economic crises including inflation, climate change, and artificial intelligence, issues that the world must jointly respond to.
About 2,700 people from the political and business world, including some 50 heads of state, are expected to attend the forum, which will be held for four nights and five days, but heads of major countries such as the United States and China are not expected to attend.
