The 47th WEF's annual meeting kicked off in Davos on January 17 and will last to January 20.
The Government has welcomed today's speech by Theresa May, saying it provided "greater clarity" on Britain's plans to leave the European Union.
"It means stepping up to a new, active role that backs businesses and ensures more people in all corners of the country share in the benefits of its success", May said.
'We are considering and discussing with the government how to maintain the competitiveness and therefore through these kinds of communications we have with the government, our hope is that we will be able to draw a bright future for the continuing existence of the plant'.
Mrs May has signalled that Britain will not be looking for associate membership of the EU.
Mrs May said it was "important that people feel they have confidence in the institutions that they deal with and are making decisions for them".
Nicola Sturgeon previously asked for this to be made clear in the letter signalling the triggering of Article 50, which is timetabled to take place before the end of March.
"Yesterday's statement by my colleague and friend, prime minister Theresa May helps clarify the priorities of the British government during the impending negotiations".
However, Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin said Ireland should be wary of the hard road that lies ahead. "But I think it's going to be at the margin and will be manageable", he said.
"We need a fair agreement and certainly not under threats".
She said: "Access to the single market is exactly what I was talking about yesterday in my speech".
"There is no mention of any special status from Northern Ireland, for example".
Meanwhile, the party's jobs spokesperson, Niall Collins, said it is time for Jobs Minister Mary Mitchell O'Connor to act.
"Sinn Fein MEPs impressed upon Mr Barnier the grave implications Brexit holds for Ireland, and in particular the challenges faced by the North of Ireland being dragged out of the European Union against the democratically expressed wishes of the people there". "Immediate enterprise stabilisation measures must be introduced and the Minister should commit to leading on this".
"The alignment between our concerns regarding the economy and trade and the United Kingdom objective of the United Kingdom to have a close, and friction-free, economic and trading relationship with the European Union, including with Ireland is also very important".
"I want to ensure we have that good relationship, good partnership with the European Union".
Getting rid of barriers to trade in services, the dominant sector in Britain's economy, is also likely to be hard, although those backing Brexit argue barriers already exist within the EU.
