World Economic Forum gets delayed again

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has postponed its Special Annual Meeting in Singapore from May to August 2021, as the world continues to struggle with Covid-19 containment.

In a statement released on February 3, WEF said: “Although the WEF and Government of Singapore remain confident of the measures in place to ensure a safe and effective meeting, and local transmission of Covid-19 in Singapore remains at negligible levels, the change to the meeting’s timing reflects the international challenges in containing the pandemic.”

It expressed challenges in planning for and delivering an in-person event against a backdrop of continued global travel restrictions and differing quarantine requirements.

Earlier in January, WEF had announced a postponement of the high-profile meeting of political, business and academic leaders from May 13-16 to May 25-28.
