(QHA) -

The 44th World Economic Forum (WEF) kicked off on Wednesday with the theme 'Reshaping the world’.

International Monetary Fund deputy managing director Zhu Min noted that the theme meant giving emerging market countries a bigger voice, BBC reports.

At least 2,500 participants from 100 countries attend the three day gathering.

Disruptive innovation, inclusive growth, climate change, environmental issues, and the Syria conflict were the conference's main topics.

Still, Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov won't be speaking at a Friday session of the World Economic Forum in Davos, after the organization uninvited him from world leader camp due to the chaos back in home country, WIRE reports.

The reversal, reported by Buzzfeed, comes a day after three protesters were killed in Ukraine's capital of Kiev. 

Azarov previously blamed the protester deaths on the opposition groups supporting the protests, although reports indicate that two of the victims were shot by snipers. The Prime Minister also called the protesters, who are calling for the end to Azarov's government, "terrorists."
