The final day of the 2021 Davos Agenda, centered around the topic of “advancing global and regional coop- eration,” saw heads of state and industry leaders come together to both highlight the successes of global cooperation in handling the COVID-19 pandemic as well as warn against vaccine nationalism and other potential disunity that may increase post-pandemic.

In Prime Minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong’s opening address, he notes how as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, the world “was forcibly reminded that our fates were intertwined and that we had to work together,” praising the global community’s efforts to restore supply chains, share tests and medical supplies, and work towards vaccine multilateralism initiatives. Similarly, he commends scientists and doctors in their willingness to share information about the disease and potential treatments, and notes that on the part of central banks, it was the “unprecedented levels of emergency spending and budgetary stimulus [that] have kept us afloat, providing a lifeline to companies, workers and families.”
