This year's forum will host about 300 participants and some 60 speakers from 15 countries, many of them are very concerned about the topic of a world without conflict."
Yanina Dubeykovskaya, WCFDavos Founder, WCFA Association President, "The mission of modern communications is to search for new resources and channels.
