Mohit Joshi (President, Infosys & Young Global Leader, WEF) commenting on his three key themes at the World Economic Forum’s 2019 Annual Meeting in Davos:

“Like every year there are key themes that are emerging from Davos this year… The first is on the importance of technology and how the digital revolution is reshaping companies, reshaping governments and it’s huge impact on society. So, there is a huge amount of focus on customer experience, a huge amount of focus on artificial intelligence. And subsequently a lot of concentration on data – data privacy, data stewardship.
The second theme is about the moral imperative of leadership. Discussion around environmental and social goals has been penetrating and essential, a lot of talk on how to empower equal opportunity, especially gender equality, gender parity. 
Finally, there was a discussion about trade, about US-China relationships, about US-Europe relationships. I think despite all the current issues internationally, there is confidence that they will get resolved in the next few months and global growth will pick up again.”
