Organization/Company: World Economic Forum, also known as the Davos Forum, is a non-profit foundation based in Cologny, near Geneva, Switzerland, founded in 1971 on the initiative of the economist and academic Klaus Schwab. Every winter in the Davos, ski resort in Switzerland, the foundation organizes a meeting between leading politicians and international economists with selected intellectuals and journalists to discuss the most urgent issues facing the world, including health and environment. In addition to this famous annual meeting, the World Economic Forum organizes every year a meeting in China and the United Arab Emirates and several regional meetings. The Foundation also produces a series of research reports and commits its members to specific sectoral initiatives. The World Economic Forum considers itself "committed to improving the condition of the world" and strives to be impartial and free of political, ideological or national constraints. Until 2012 he had an observer status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council. The foundation is financed by about one thousand member companies, usually multinationals with turnover of more than 5 billion euros (although there are some differences according to geographical area or industrial sector). Associated companies are almost always leaders in their sector or country and play a key role in guiding their future developments. The membership fee, paid by companies, varies according to their level of involvement, and the status of strategic partners and regional partners. The governing body of the WEF is the foundation council. In 2006, the WEF joined the regional offices of New York and Beijing at its Swiss headquarters in the small town of Cologny. The main event organized by the World Economic Forum is the annual forum held at the end of January in the ski resort of Davos, in the canton of Grisons in Switzerland
