Back In January 2017, Nawaz Sharif was forbidden from making a speech in Davos due to corruption investigation.
The main reason for not allowing the prime minister to deliver a speech on any forum was said to be the alleged involvement of then prime minister in massive corruption in Pakistan.
He could only hold a meeting with the Sri Lankan prime minister and no bilateral meeting with the head of any other country took place. The entire nation was desperately frustrated over the country being made a laughing stock by the prime minister during his visit.
But time took a turn and Imran Khan became prime minister of Pakistan. Khan as one of the best speakers was already invited to make a special speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier last year.
On May 20, 2020, Imran Khan was once again invited by the World Economic Forum to deliver a special speech. See his full speech, below.
