Several Republican lawmakers have announced their plans to attend the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting next week in Davos, Switzerland, The Daily Wire reports.
The conference is led by WEF founder and economist Klaus Schwab and will bring together some of the world’s most powerful government officials and corporate leaders to discuss and promote global initiatives, according to the news org.
One panel at the event, entitled “Reshaping the legislative landscape in the United States,” will feature Republicans Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia and Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar of Florida, as well as a number of other Democratic officials.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Gov. Kemp noted that he will share with leaders how “the state of Georgia’s long record of conservative governance, protecting individual liberty, and championing opportunity can serve as a model for economic success across the country and around the world.”
Also in attendance will be Governor J.B. Pritzker (D-IL), Sens. Chris Coons (D-DE), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ), and Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ).
Daily Wire notes that other public figures from the United States planning to attend the event include Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Sen. Kames Risch (R-ID), and Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), as well as Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), and Rep. Greg Meeks (D-NY), according to a list of speakers posted by the WEF.
Officials from the Biden administration, including Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, Trade Representative Katherine Tai, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, USAID Administrator Samantha Power, and Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, will also be in attendance.
The Biden administration has established a partnership with the World Economic Forum through the First Movers Coalition, a joint effort to bring about the commercialization of clean technologies through advance purchase commitments, Daily Wire notes.
The WEF’s Schwab, who promotes globalism, is the architect behind the organization’s controversial “Great Reset” agenda.
