The picture-perfect Swiss Alpine resort of Davos this week plays host to the planet’s most influential movers and shakers who have come together for the World Economic Forum. We discuss the issues in this week's Business Extra podcast. Listen here:

While some big hitters have stayed away this time to deal with problems closer to home, the forum is still a significant opportunity for the international community to focus on solving the pressing issues we are all affected by and pointing the way to a brighter future, economically, commercially and this year environmentally.

Speaking directly from Davos, The National’s Assistant Editor in Chief Mustafa Alrawi talks to Chris Nelson about what is shaping the agenda at this year’s WEF.
