No further delays to Singapore's Davos, WEF says

Brende, speaking to Reuters in Singapore late Tuesday (February 9) as he wrapped up a series of preparatory meetings with the city-state's government, said he hoped the summit would attract at least 1,000 leaders from politics, business and civil society.

WEF has twice pushed back its special meeting in Singapore, initially scheduled for mid-May and now due in August, after it announced late last year it was moving from its usual home in the Swiss alps due to the COVID-19 situation in Europe.

Davos is due to return to its normal home in the Swiss alpine town from which it takes its name in January 2022.
