President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will come to the World Economic Forum in Davos on January 22. He will deliver a speech there as the President’s Office reported.
“On January 22, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will make a working visit to Switzerland to participate in the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum,” the message said.
The schedule of the visit includes the speech of President Zelensky, which will take place at 4:00 p.m. Besides, the president planned a number of meetings with the leaders of other states, representatives of business and international financial organizations.
Besides, Executive Director of Corruption Counteraction Center Daria Kalenyuk, businessman Viktor Pinchuk, Director-General of DTEK (holding company that develops business streams in the energy sector, - ed.) Maksym Tkachenko, entrepreneur Vadym Novinsky, and Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko will come to Davos too.
In 2019, U.S. leader Donald Trump canceled his visit to Davos within the World Economic Forum in late January. The reason was his ongoing opposition with the Democratic Party within the discussions about the wall construction on the U.S.-Mexico border.
As we reported, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo postponed his trip to Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Cyprus due to unrest in Iraq. He had to come to Kyiv on January 3.
