Brexit, Venezuela Key at Davos         01/24 06:16

   DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) -- The fallout from developments in Venezuela and 
uncertainty over Britain's exit from the European Union are set to be key 
points of discussions Thursday at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss town of 
Davos.

   Following two days when much of the debate has centered on issues related to 
global trade, particularly the dispute between the United States and China, and 
climate change, the world's political and business elites are digesting what's 
going on in Venezuela, after the U.S. recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido 
as interim president.

   Brexit will also feature heavily, with British ministers due to address the 
Forum on Thursday, including Treasury chief Philip Hammond. Bank of England 
Governor Mark Carney is also due to appear before a panel as is World Trade 
Organization chief Roberto Azevedo.
