We have full coverage from Davos as Xi Jinping becomes the first Chinese leader to address the World Economic Forum, held this year in the week Donald Trump will be inaugurated as U.S. president. What do delegates make of Brexit? And is Davos itself somehow to blame for the rise in populism and discontent around the world?

“Protectionism is like locking yourself in a dark room, which would seem to escape wind and rain, but also block out the sunshine,” Chinese President Xi Jinping told the World Economic Forum, the first Chinese head of state to address the annual gathering in the Alpine resort town of Davos. “No one is a winner in a trade war.”

"Regulators can change a lot of things easily about compliance, about costs, certain rules about lending, how you use your liquidity, how you use your capital. I would like to see some of those looked at and maybe modified a bit, and I think it would be good for the economy." JPMorgan  Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said in a Bloomberg Television interview on Wednesday.

On the second day of the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting, delegates, including IMF chief Christine Lagarde, disagreed on how best to address the upending of the western political order, a debate made doubly urgent by the string of elections in Europe this year where anti-establishment parties could gain more ground.
