(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) The world's political and business elite began meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos in Switzerland on Wednesday (January 23). The first full day of sessions at the WEF's annual gathering brought together many of the more than 1,500 business leaders and up to 50 heads of state or government set to attend the event. The theme of this year's meeting is "resilient dynamism", a bid to move on from years of economic crisis management. But many delegates have voiced concern over the lack of leadership in addressing global issues, or lack of co-ordination.
