Chinese President Xi Jinping is the first Chinese chairman to visit the World Economic Forum.
It is likely to be an uncompromising message.

So far, Mr. Trump is talking tough.
A strong supporter, Anthony Scaramucci, which is scheduled to be contracted with another business advisers Mr. Trump, also will speak at Davos.
Instead of glorifying the virtues of the current structures of global trade, and he is likely to focus on what he sees as weaknesses.
In the past he had backed the criticisms of Mr. Navarro, who allow China to join the World Trade Organization under President Bill Clinton was a decision that US industry “did not recover from.”
In contrast with President Xi be stark.
