The World Economic Forum is a non-profit buisness organization based in Geneva, Switzerland and is best known for its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The World Economic Forum was founded in 1971 by Klaus M. Schwab, a business professor from Switzerland. Beyond meetings, the Forum produces a series of research reports and engages its members in sector specific initiatives. The five day World Economic Forum in Davos, brings together over 2,500 people; mainly top business leaders, international political leaders, selected intellectuals,  and journalists to discuss the most pressing issues facing the world including healthcare and the environment. In 2006, the World Economic Forum opened regional offices in New York City and Beijing. With close to twenty key initiatives, here are a few of my favorites, ones scheduled to be discussed: Economic Growth; Environmental Sustainability; Financial Systems; Health for All; Social Development. The following is the World Economic Forum Opening Address byDimitry Medvedev, President of t he Russian Federation.
