The 2024 Summer Davos forum will be hosted from June 25 to 27 in northeast China's coastal city of Dalian in a green and frugal way, with the largest-ever attendance and a wide array of hot topics, said its organizers at a press conference in Beijing on Tuesday.

Also known as the 15th World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting of the New Champions, this year's forum will feature the theme "Next Frontiers for Growth."

More than 1,600 guests from nearly 80 countries and regions have registered for participation, with six major topics to be discussed: a new global economy; China and the world; entrepreneurship in the age of AI; new frontiers for industries; investing in people; and connecting climate, nature and energy, according to the organizers.

"We have set up more than 200 activities for this year's forum. A number of guests from the business, political, academic circles as well as social and international organizations have registered for participation," said Chen Liming, the Greater China Chairman of World Economic Forum.

The Dalian International Conference Center, the main venue of the 2024 Summer Davos, is now closed for construction and installation work, with the inspection of major facilities and equipment as well as water, electricity and gas supply systems having been completed.

The forum will embrace a green and frugal hosting concept.

"The energy consumption of the core venues and supporting facilities is 100 percent green electricity. A total of 520 new energy vehicles have been assembled for transporting guests. The materials for hosting the forum will be recycled and the project budgets have been reduced to implement the simple, moderate, green, and low-carbon principles throughout the process," said Chen Shaowang, mayor of Dalian.

Established by the WEF in 2007, the event is held annually in China, alternating between the two port cities of Tianjin and Dalian.
