world economic forum
The World Economic Forum has wrapped up after a week of intense discussions, networking and consensus-building in the snowy Swiss mountain resort of Davos. Among some of the smaller nations taking part was Mongolia, which is trying to use the event to promote itself on the global stage as it tries to diversify its economy and bolster relations outside of its traditional allies, Russia and China.
Ukraine's president and China's prime minister shared the spotlight at the World Economic Forum on Tuesday, as they both delivered keynote addresses. Calling Vladimir Putin an embodiment of war, Volodymyr Zelensky called on Kyiv's allies to take a tougher stand against Russia. China's Li Qiang focused on trade and the economy, taking aim at what he called disruptive trade barriers.
