Bloomberg HT will keep the pulse of the hill with live broadcasts and interviews.

Providing information about the hill from Davos, Bloomberg HT Editor-in-Chief Açıl Sezen said, “The main theme is cooperation in a fragmented world. The theme at the top, which was held for the first time in the spring last year, was a theme like this.

At that time, the Ukraine and Russia War was their new time. He had a very different perspective on the occasion. Conversion of globalization, the real evolution of global trade into more different supply chains was the main theme. Due to the Omicron variant, there was a significant lack of participation in that hill. This year, there are a little more participation, but it seems that the classic Davos participant profile has not been captured this year either. There are few state leaders. But, compared to last Davos, we see an increase in company participation. There are many high-level executives, especially from American companies. Last time banker CEOs didn’t participate, this time I can quickly say that CEOs of almost all banks are here,” he said.

“As the effect of the energy crisis, there is an increase in the number of participants from the Middle East”

Emphasizing that there is no participation from Russia, on the other hand, there is a low-profile participation on the Chinese side, Sezen stated that there is an increase in the number of participants from the Middle East and said:

“We can say that the number of Middle Eastern participants has increased. This time, although the profile of the participants has changed to a certain extent in Davos’ profile, we can say that it is an approach that fits the main theme. In order to expand the channels of dialogue, a little sensitivity was also exercised in order to establish a more solid connection with more Middle Eastern countries as the effect of the power crisis.”
