The World Economic Forum is preparing to host President Xi Jinping at its annual meeting in Davos on 17–20 January, marking the first such appearance of a Chinese President.

Join for a reflection on the leadership of Xi Jinping and the new role of China in shaping global governance. A cocktail reception will follow to celebrate together the new year of the rooster.
