LONDON: Davos delegates will get to sample a taste of Saudi Arabia at a cafe in the event venue in Switzerland this week.
It is one of a series of initiatives organized by the Misk Foundation, a non-profit philanthropic foundation established by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. It aims to empower Saudi youth to become active participants in the Kingdom’s future economy.
“The Saudi Café – operated by a Saudi chef, will introduce a piece of Saudi culture to the WEF,” the Misk Global Foundation said in a statement on the eve of the gathering.
Some 3,000 leaders from the worlds of business, public policy, culture and technology are due to arrive in the Alpine town of Davos for the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF), which begins on Tuesday.
Positioned at Promenade 80 and open daily to all, the Saudi Café will also offer networking and working spaces alongside coffee and traditional Saudi delicacies.
Misk also plans to release research at Davos highlighting how some of the biggest challenges facing attendees can be addressed by youth-led solutions.
