The World Economic Forum said on Monday that it cancelled the special annual meeting in Singapore.

"The World Economic Forum has informed the Singapore government that due to the continuing global uncertainties caused by COVID-19, it will be cancelling its Special Annual Meeting for 2021, which was scheduled to take place in Singapore from 17 to 20 August," Singapore's Ministry of Trade and Industry said on Monday.

In a media statement issued on Monday, the forum highlighted the difficulty of organizing a meeting of this scale, involving business, government and civil society leaders from different corners of the world, in light of the evolving international travel rules aimed at containing the COVID-19.

The forum will now plan to hold its next annual meeting in the first half of 2022, with the final date and location to be determined later, it said.
