Vera Daves considered by the World Economic Forum as a young world leader

Finance Minister Vera Daves has been named a young global leader by the World Economic Forum. The minister's name appears on a list of 112 young people considered to be young world leaders under the age of 40, who are involved in various activities, such as advocating for public health or promoting campaigns for inclusion in medical research.


This year's list was revealed this Friday and, according to Novo Jornal, has the representation of 56 countries.

Divided into categories, the name of the holder of the Finance portfolio was included in the category "Public Figures".

Mariah Levin, head of the Young Global Leaders Forum revealed, quoted in a statement mentioned by the New Journal, that this year's class of young global leaders "is made up of thoughtful and courageous leaders who will shape a more sustainable and inclusive post-pandemic era."

Forum board member Nicole Schwab, meanwhile, also quoted in the release, said they were "very pleased to welcome the class of 2021 at a time when the culture of a responsible alliance is needed more than ever to guide us through multiple challenges facing the world."

According to a statement, the upcoming forum "will be the first global leaders' event to address global pandemic recovery."

Klaus Schwab, executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, created the Young Global Leaders Forum in 2005, with the goal of establishing "a world where leaders take responsibility for a sustainable future while facing increasingly complex and interrelated challenges."
