Key figures such as Ajay S. Banga of the World Bank Group and Fatih Birol of the IEA, among others, will participate.

The WEF 2024 agenda is structured around four key themes: promoting global cooperation, fostering economic growth and employment for the future, harnessing AI as an economic and societal catalyst, and formulating a long-term plan for climate, nature, and energy.

Highlighted is the AI Governance Alliance, consisting of tech giants aiming to steer AI development ethically, emphasizing transparent, inclusive AI designs with a global perspective.
