 India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be the first Indian PM to make an appearance at the high-profile World Economic Forum summit in 20 years.

This will be the first visit by an Indian prime minister since the earlier one by Deve Gowda in 1997.

The Prime Minister has already left for Switzerland today where he will attend the summit to be held in Davos.

Modi will lead India's largest ever contingent of 130 participants, which includes five Union ministers and several leading industry leaders of the country.

The CEO delegation, led by apex industry body CII (Confederation of Indian Industry), will include Mukesh Ambani, Gautam Adani, Azim Premji, Rahul Bajaj, N Chandrasekaran, Chanda Kochhar, Uday Kotak and Ajay Singh, among others.

Bollywood Actor Shahrukh Khan is set to be honoured with the 'Crystal Award', at the summit along with Australian actress Cate Blanchett and legendary musician Elton John.

The theme for this year's World Economic Forum is "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World."

More than 3,000 world leaders from varied backgrounds, such as business, politics, art, academia and civil society will attend the 48th World Economic Forum annual meeting over the next five days in the small ski resort town of Davos on the snow-covered Alps Mountains, where the Indian presence will be the largest ever with 130 participants.
