Davos 2017: The great uncertainty

The key word at the World Economic Forum this year was uncertainty. With Donald Trump in the White House and the UK set to start Brexit talks, there’s plenty to keep business leaders on their toes in the coming year.

Also, we look at the challenge of marketing a whole country to the global elite. Kate Moody finds out how and why governments do it.
