Davos 2013: Fast down the hill!

We must continue to proceed with resilience and dynamism!

The 43rd World Economic Forum opened in Davos (Switzerland) on January 23. This year, the meeting of the world's most influential political, economic and cultural figures is to go ahead under the slogan of "resilient dynamism", which is supposed to pull the global economy out of the doldrums in to which it has been hurled by the economic crisis.

The same day, the International Monetary Fund announced that the eurozone economy "is expected to contract 0.2 per cent in 2013, instead of growing 0.2 per cent."
