Davos to host the World Economic Forum

This is reported by the site of the forum.

The WEF of world leaders and CEOs in Davos will be chaired by women including Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg and IBM Chief Executive Officer Ginni Rometty.

The Forum will focus on discussions of expansion and protection of women’s rights and issues of security and economic development.

Also, a number of speeches by world leaders, including Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, France’s President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker are planned.

Also, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Christine Lagarde plans to hold a meeting with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko. The IMF assumed that the parties would discuss “recent developments and prospects for reforms in Ukraine.” It is possible that Lagarde and Poroshenko will discuss the bill on the anti-corruption court, which was previously criticized by the IMF.

In addition, the first-ever Ukrainian House is to open in Davos. Under the moniker “Ukraine: Creativity, Innovation, Opportunity”, this multi-format space will showcase investment opportunities in Ukraine’s IT and Innovation sectors for global business, technology and investment leaders.

A traditional Ukrainian breakfast will be served on January 25 in Davos as part of the agenda of the 2018 WEF. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko was invited to be the honorary guest of this breakfast at the Forum. Last year, Ukraine’s head-of-state decided not to attend this major world event.

U.S. President Donald Trump will give the keynote address on the forum’s closing day.

It is expected that this year Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko will attend the forum in Davos. He has plans to meet with Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Christine Lagarde.

It is also expected that the Ukrainian leader will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump.
