Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili and a small Georgian delegation are set to travel to Davos, Switzerland today in order to participate in the World Economic Forum’s 47th session.

Davos, a Swiss ski resort, is home to the annual World Economic Forum meeting. This year the four-day event will begin on January 23.

The world's top industry leaders and over 50 heads of state and governments gather in sub-zero temperatures at the World Economic Forum's annual conference to discuss challenges facing the global economy and the way forward.

During the World Economic Forum, Georgian PM will deliver a speech at the Strategic Outlook—Eurasia discussion.

Kvirikashvili is also scheduled to hold bilateral meetings with political leaders from different countries, the European Commission leadership, and founders of large international companies.

Kvirikashvili will be accompanied to Davos by the Vice Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mikheil Janelidze, Finance Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze, and Co-Investment Fund CEO Giorgi Bachiashvili.
