The “bullet train” of globalization is broken and the West is obliged to help Chinese President Xi Jinping fix it, China’s official Xinhua news agency on Friday said of the World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in the Swiss Alps next week. Xi will be the first Chinese president to ever attend the WEF’s annual forum in Davos, which brings together top-level political and business leaders. According to Reuters, this year’s meeting, from Jan. 17-20, is expected to be dominated by discussion of public hostility toward globalization and the rise of US President-elect Donald Trump, whose tough talk on trade, including promises of tariffs against China and Mexico, helped win him the White House. Days after Trump’s victory, Xi vowed to fight protectionism and push forward with multilateral trade deals.
