(AP) Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Premier Mario Monti will headline next week's annual gathering of world leaders and power brokers in the Swiss ski resort of Davos.

The World Economic Forum says Wednesday the three leaders will focus on promoting a global economic revival. Nearly 50 presidents and prime ministers, over 1,000 chairmen and CEOs of global companies are due to attend the event Jan. 23-27.

Others who are expected to attend include Microsoft founder Bill Gates, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde.

Klaus Schwab, the forum's founder, called the forum a lab for new ideas to improve the world.
