Sharjah 24 – Reuters: The 48TH annual World Economic Forum has officially kicked off in the Alpine town of Davos in Switzerland under the theme of "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World".
Usually home to just 4500 people, every year, this small town is swamped with thousands of participants, media and security from across the world who have come for one week to address today's critical global challenges from the 23rd to 26th January.

This year, there are over 3,000 participants, including more than 70 heads of state and government and 45 heads of international organisations. Joining them are participants from academia, media and the arts.
