It’s that time of the year again, when the World Economic Forum takes place in Davos, Switzerland. In Davos, Europe's highest town at 1,560 metres above sea level, anxieties are also running high. 

As we start the year described by the world economic forum as the riskiest in over a decade, 2,500 attendees from all over the world would be brainstorming to solve issues such as deflation contagion, economic stagnation and mass involuntary migration.

The theme of this year’s meeting is: "Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution". The program comprises over 250 sessions, of which over 100 sessions will be webcast live.

Participants this year come from almost 100 countries, and include VIPs such as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Alibaba's Jack Ma and actor Leonardo Di Caprio. 

Some key sessions will discuss: the new security context, the transformation of finance, the climate crisis, and where the Chinese economy is heading.

And, like every year, people will want to see a real action plan for the year 2016, and not just talking heads.
