Security was on the minds of both organisers of the 2013 World Economic Forum (WEF) which kicked off at Davos, a canton of Switzerland and President Goodluck Jonathan who Wednesday joined 2500 world leaders amidst enhanced security manifested by placement of several barricades at the conference venue.
Participants at the conference, which officially started on the evening of Wednesday, met and discussed several burning issues impacting the global economy, such as HIV/AIDS, debt crises, rampant unemployment, environmental time bombs, difficult finance and development issues in Africa.
With the theme: ‘Resilient Dynamism’, the 43rd edition of the WEF, a special session of the gathering titled: ‘De-Risking Africa’ featured President Jonathan alongside his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma of South Africa.
