The CEO of the World Economic Forum says Summer Davos is about the future of innovation, and the future of sustainable growth. China is one of the few places where growth is happening right now, making it the ideal venue for the forum.

Andre Schnerder, CEO of World Economic Forum said "When you do something about the future of growth, the future of innovation, the future of sustainable growth, you'll have to go to a place where growth happens. And frankly, not that many places, ehn so we choose China for that. We have for quite some time strategically positioned it as our second global meeting. Whereas the Winter Davos is really about the geopolitical agenda, national view of business, here we are talking about the growth and innovation agenda. but these two meetings are in their importance in their grabality in the same level. Now it is true after 40 years of Winter Davos we have still a little bit ahead of way. but I think we're catching up quickly, and we will continuously push forward."
