The foreign office statement said that two key highlights of the visit include the prime minister's "Keynote Address" at the WEF Special Session, and his interaction at the "Pakistan Strategy Dialogue" with CEOs and Corporate leaders.

On the first day of the forum, Prime Minister Borisov will participate in a session on Dialogue on Western Balkans Diplomacy. He will also give interviews to major global media outlets. "But they understand the immorality of Davos, the immorality of a billionaire class that meets every year to celebrate their excesses", said Kenyan eco-campaigner Njoki Njoroge Njehu.

According to the press release, Prime Minister Imran will share Pakistan's vision and achievements in the areas of economy, peace & stability, trade, business and investment opportunities during his visit to Davos.

The prime minister is going to Davos on the invitation of WEF Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab, the Foreign Office said in a statement.

When asked he wanted to achieve that aim by the end of his current two-year contract, Jones replied: "I want to do it next weekend".

As per the Foreign Office, several meetings with a number of corporate, business, technology, and finance executives, as well as representatives of global financial institutions were also scheduled.

The prime minister would also highlight occupied Kashmir's current situation and the country's perspective on key regional and global issues. This year's session marks the 50th anniversary of the forum. In keeping with the significance of this milestone, political leaders, business executives, heads of global organizations and civil society representatives will deliberate on contemporary economic, geopolitical, social and environmental issues. The summit began as a business forum, but evolved in an event for policymakers and activists.

In December 2019, the Trump administration has approved the resumption of Pakistan's participation in a coveted U.S. military training and educational programme more than a year after it was suspended.

US President Donald Trump will likely hog much of the limelight, but also present for the second straight year will be Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, whose famously hard stare at the US leader at the United Nations General Assembly symbolised anger over inaction on global warming.
