Chief ministers line up for Davos
As the rich and powerful from across the globe gear up for their annual talk-fest in the Swiss ski resort town of Davos, a number of state leaders from India are planning to join them to tell the world their respective growth stories.
Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj S. Bommai and his Andhra Pradesh counterpart Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy are expected to be in Davos for the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting 2022 from May 22-26, while Maharashtra minister and chief minister Uddhav Thackeray’s son Aditya Thackeray as also Telangana minister and the state chief minister K. Chandrashekar Rao’s son K.T. Rama Rao would be there.
Besides, the Tamil Nadu government is likely to set up a special lounge in Davos for the duration of the WEF summit, while leaders from some other Indian states are also likely to visit the Swiss resort town at that time.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and some senior Union ministers are also expected to participate in the WEF’s Davos summit, one of the most high-profile congregations of the world leaders globally, but there has been no official announcement so far regarding their participation.
At least 100 Indian CEOs, as well as hundreds of business and political leaders from across the world are already registered for the five-day event.
