The in-person event is scheduled for Jan 17-21 and designed “to address economic, environmental, political and social fault lines exacerbated by the pandemic,” the group said on Thursday. It is working with the Swiss government and health experts to establish the appropriate safety measures.

The meeting usually feature heads of states as well many of the world’s top executives, bankers and economic policymakers.

“The pandemic has brought far-reaching changes,” WEF Founder Klaus Schwab said. “In a world full of uncertainty and tension, personal dialogue is more important than ever.”
