But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump would be promoting his policies for strengthening American businesses, industries and workers.

Last year, President Xi Jinping became the first Chinese leader to attend the meet, whose stated mission is "improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas".

Free trade is especially popular among Davos attendees.

The lone attendee from his coterie of advisers past year was hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci, who later served briefly as Trump's communications director.

The White House announced on Tuesday that Trump would be attending the World Economic Forum meet starting on January 22, and word out of New Delhi is that Prime Minister Modi will be there too with a strong Indian contingent.

Last year's WEF was dominated by reaction to Mr Trump's surprise election victory and his campaign.

Ms Sanders rejected the notion that Mr Trump's attendance symbolised he was backing away from his message of economic nationalism.

This year's theme reflects the gathering's global flavor: "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World". He withdrew the USA from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement between Pacific Rim countries, and pulled out of the Paris climate accord, a commitment to reduce carbon emissions.

In an interview on Monday prior to the announcement, Harvard University professor Ken Rogoff identified Trump as a risk to the economic expansion. "There's policy uncertainty", said Rogoff, who is scheduled to be a panelist at Davos this year.

Executives at the conference will welcome Trump's corporate tax cut and the regulatory slash his administration had enforced.
