Between 17 and 20 January, the Swiss mountains will be abuzz as the World Economic Forum once again descends on Davos. After a hugely tumultuous year, follow’s live coverage of the meeting, where we will be on-site to provide all the latest developments.

The meeting will focus on four key leadership challenges for 2017: strengthening global collaboration, revitalising economic growth, reforming capitalism and preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

One-third of the 3,000 participants will be coming from outside of Europe and North America and the forum will be opened by Chinese President Xi Jinping, who will be bringing the largest delegation of officials since his country first participated in the meeting back in 1979.
