Minister Janelidze left for Davos, Switzerland yesterday in order to participate in the World Economic Forum’s 47th session with a Georgian delegation led by Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili.

Stressing that the World Economic Forum unites political leaders from all over the world as well as representatives of international business corporations, Minister Janelidze said it is important that Georgia be represented on a high level.

Prime Minister Kvirikashvili will also take part in the discussion about our region and its development… This year we are attending the forum with yet even more success expressed through business opportunities and an improved business environment”, Janelidze said.

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

Davos, a Swiss ski resort, is home to the annual World Economic Forum meeting. This year the four-day event begins today.

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.
