Pres Zuma attends the forum on the back of declining economy, rand slide, varsity demonstrations, amongst others.WEF

The forum is where presidents, hedge fund managers, central bankers, chief executives, social-media magnates, heads of state, self-help gurus, artists, celebrities, fashion models and even archbishops engage in the equivalent of intellectual or corporate speed dating.

If all goes well, they may pry open a possible business deal, pad out a contact list or maybe receive enlightenment about affairs outside their professional expertise.

This years’ theme is ‘improving the state of the world’ and again Africa will be the key focus owing to instability and international terror attacks.

Klaus Schwab, the World Economic Forum’s founder and one of the best-connected men on the planet, will address delegates.

On a lighter note actor and Grammy nominee Leonardo diCaprio has been invited to receive award for his organization that focuses on climate change and saving wildlife. Musician Will.i.am has also been invited and will be honoured for his foundation.

The WEF wraps up on January 24.
