The American president, Donald Trump, leaves this Monday to participate in the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland) where he will hold bilateral meetings with the president of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, and with the president of Iraq, Barham Salih
Likewise, the president will meet with the president of the Swiss Confederation, Simonetta Sommaruga; Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan; and the president of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Nechirvan Barzani, reported the White House.
This is Trump's return to the great global forum after he canceled his assistance last year because of the prolonged closure of the US federal government.
Trump arrives in Davos a few days after achieving two of his main commercial successes: the approval of the new Free Trade Agreement of Mexico, the United States and Canada (T-MEC), and the signing of the "first phase" of his pact with China to reverse the bilateral trade war.
This year, the president’s visit will also coincide with the start of the political impeachment process launched against him by the Democratic opposition in Congress.
They also plan their assistance to Davos, German Chancellor Angela Merkel; the director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgieva; and the president of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez.
Among the guests are some characters who have been openly criticized by Trump as the billionaire investor George Soros or the young environmental activist, Greta Thunberg.
The most select of the global executive class goes to the World Economic Forum, where 2,800 participants from 118 countries have been announced this year.
In Davos, a secluded and exclusive town in the Swiss Alps known for its facilities and ski slopes, those responsible for the firms that generate 70% of the turnover of the 100 largest companies on the planet will meet from Tuesday to Friday, and among them the CEOs of eight of the ten multinationals with the highest market value.
