The WEF, based in Geneva, is an international non-governmental organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industrial agendas.
The event is also known as the "Davos Forum" as its annual winter meetings are held in the ski resort of Davos.
Due to its increasing global influence, the forum has been hailed as a "top-level non-governmental global economic forum," in which international political and business leaders, as well as leaders of civil and social organizations, can exchange views on worldwide economic issues.
China has kept close engagement with the WEF and has sent delegations to the forum's annual meetings since 1979. In June 2006, the forum opened its regional office in Beijing.
