President to take part in Davos Economic Forum

President Andrzej Duda to take part in Davos Economic Forum

Polish President Andrzej Duda will take part in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, from Tuesday to Friday. The President will attend a debate on Central Europe and a closed-door meeting with Middle Eastern leaders. President Andrzej Duda is scheduled to meet King Abdullah II of Jordan.


He will also talk to Google's CEO, Sundar Pichai.


"This year, President Andrzej Duda will take part in the World Economic Forum in Davos for the first time. It is going to be a long and very intensive stay," PAP was told by Duda's chief aide, Krzysztof Szczerski.


On Tuesday evening, President Duda will take part in a dinner with other heads of state and leaders of the world's key economic and financial institutions. "It's going to be the first opportunity to start informal talks, as Davos is mainly behind-the-scenes and face-to-face talks between leaders," Krzysztof Szczerski noted.


The President will take part in several panel discussions, both open and closed.


Andrzej Duda will make a speech on the development of European infrastructure and ways to combine China's One Belt One Road initiative with his Three Seas idea of cooperation among countries situated between the Baltic, Adriatic and Black seas, Krzysztof Szczerski also said.


Andrzej Duda is going to take part in a panel discussion on the significance of Central and Eastern Europe in global politics, economy and security.


Additionally, the President will take part in a promotional event for Poland's Pekao S.A. bank.


President Duda will hold a range of bilateral meetings, including one with King Abdullah II of Jordan, with whom he is going to discuss the problems of the Middle East.


During his visit, Andrzej Duda wants to promote Poland as an important element of international security and European growth, according to minister Szczerski. (PAP)
