A Gala Reception will be hosted by Ambassador Elchin Amirbayov, Head of Baku Expo 2025 Taskforce, who will outline Baku's candidacy to host World Expo 2025.
"We are delighted to host our Baku Expo 2025 Gala reception at the high profile World Economic Forum, bringing together over 2,500 leaders from the world of business and politics to tackle critical global challenges," Amirbayov said, commenting on the event.
The theme proposed by Azerbaijan for World Expo in 2025 is "Developing human capital, building a better future."
Within this theme lies three sub-themes which focus on the future of education, health and employment. These are some of the questions which will also be addressed at the World Economic Forum 2018 as it considers the issue of "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World."
Azerbaijan's capital Baku is one of three cities bidding to organize World Expo 2025 - competing with Osaka (Japan), and Yekaterinburg (Russian Federation).
