The World Economic Forum (WEF) postponed until mid-2022 its annual meeting that had been due to take place in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos in January, the organizers said on Monday.

The event, a meeting point for the world's business and political leaders, has been postponed in light of continued uncertainty over the omicron outbreak, it said, adding the meeting was now planned for “early summer.”
