Davos 2017 kicked off earlier today and anticipated hot topics include the global economy, climate change and geopolitical risk.

Globalisation, the first visit to Davos by a Chinese president, the future vision of the EU, the problems of inequality, and looming technological threats are also likely to be up for discussion.

Amidst the current global political uncertainty largely driven by Brexit and the results of the US elections, it is hoped that this year's meeting will not only set the agenda for the coming year, but also highlight achievable solutions.
