Time’s Davos special issue includes PM Imran Khan on cover

Time magazine’s special edition on the World Economic Forum published on January 20 features Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan along with four other world leaders.

The annual summit of global movers and shakers kicks off in the Swiss resort of Davos on Tuesday and will last four days.

Other leaders alongside the Pakistani prime minister included founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Klaus Schwab, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and Europe’s Central Bank President Christine Lagarde.

The magazine’s cover featured the five leaders sitting on a chair lift with the snow-covered Swiss Alps in the background. US President Donald Trump and young climate activist Greta Thunberg can also be seen sitting together on another chairlift in the background of the illustration.

PM Imran is expected to reach Davos, Switzerland on Tuesday for a three-day — January 21-23, 2019 — official visit to attend the Forum, with his trip costing 68,000 dollars due to austerity measures taken by the government.

PM Imran’s Advisor on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood, Zulfi Bukhari and other officials will accompany him to Davos, where he is expected to hold meetings with several world leaders, including US President Trump.

During the visit, PM Imran will meet foreign investors and inform them of investment opportunities in Pakistan.
