Microsoft's CEO - This Is the Challenge of Our Times

Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) CEO Satya Nadella on Tuesday, Jan. 22, stressed that the decoupling between the economic and productivity growth and jobs and wages is the biggest challenge of our times.

Speaking at one of the panel discussions at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2019 in Davos, Switzerland, he said, "I would say, each of us will have to play a role."

Nadella, who is also the co-chair of the 48th annual gathering, urged every company to work towards finding a way to benefit every community they work with.

"I would say for us starting in every company in every community that we work and live and doing our part and then finding this new architecture for this next phase of globalization where we drive aggressively economic growth but we do figure out a way to drive that equitable growth supporting initiatives that all of you talked about."

The four-day conference being held in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, houses world leaders and the top executives of major companies worldwide.
