The World Economic Forum (WEF) has released The Global Risks Report 2019, which highlights ongoing geopolitical and geoeconomic tension as the biggest risk factor facing humanity’s progress. The WEF, an independent organization that focuses on economic and societal issues, published the report ahead of its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, where the world’s leaders in business, media, and politics have gathered for high-level discussions.
Børge Brende, WEF’s president, said in the report, “The world is facing a growing number of complex and interconnected challenges—from slowing global growth and persistent economic inequality to climate change, geopolitical tensions, and the accelerating pace of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In isolation, these are daunting challenges; faced simultaneously, we will struggle if we do not work together.”
