Mayor Kasim Reed Participates in 2014 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland

January 22, 2014

Mayor Kasim Reed announced today that he will participate in the 2014 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland from January 21-25, 2014. The theme of this year’s meeting is “The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business.” Mayor Reed joins more than 2,500 participants from almost 100 countries representing business, government, academia and civil society, including more than 30 heads of state or government and more than 1,500 business leaders. As the first Atlanta Mayor to participate in the World Economic Forum, Reed will speak on the ascendency of cities and the ways in which metropolitan regions drive economic, political, social, and cultural trends and public policy on a global scale.

“It is an honor to be invited to participate in the global problem-solving conversations that will take place in Davos,” said Mayor Reed. “Without question, the economic future of our nation and world is determined by the success of cities. I believe that mayors and government leaders are in a stronger position than ever before to leverage the positive impacts of urbanization and address the challenges that face us.”

At the forum, Mayor Reed will participate in six sessions, including:
