One of the heads of the World Economic Forum (WEF) praised China’s horrific Covid-19 crackdown, which saw the mass arrest of protestors and police locking up residents in their homes for months. 

WEF president praises China’s brutal Covid crackdown

In an interview with the communist state outlet Xinhua news, WEF president Borge Brende brushed off the country’s human rights abuses by calling them a minor challenge to China’s economic success. 

 “(China’s response) will lead to stronger and more prosperous growth, even if this immediate situation is a bit challenging,” said Brende.

“Overall, for late 2023 and 2024, we’re very optimistic on growth in China.”

Brende said this even though two months ago, Chinese citizens protesting their government’s COVID restrictions were beaten in the streets – and some even burned alive while locked inside their apartments.

Brende also had glowing words for China’s Belt and Road Initiative, which seeks to extend the communist dictatorship’s reach globally, saying it was “critical and consequential” for the WEF’s elite agenda. 

WEF founder and longtime communist dictatorship admirer Klaus Schwab personally invited Chinese vice premier Liu He to the conference this year. 

“Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will attend the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting 2023 and visit Switzerland from Jan. 15 to 19 at the invitation of Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the WEF and the government of the Swiss Confederation,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry announced. 

In line with a communist dictatorship, the Swiss government has ordered 5,000 soldiers to closely guard the over 3,000 global elites against protests at this year’s meeting in Davos. 

Earlier this week The Counter Signal reported how key members of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s cabinet will be attending WEF.

Both deputy prime minister Chrystia Freeland and minister of international trade Mary Ng will be speaking at the conference.
