Nearly fifty heads of state, government and personalities from around the world will participate next week at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos (Switzerland), including US President Donald Trump and Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg.
However, Iran's Foreign Minister, Mohamad Javad Zarif, will not be expected, in full tension with the United States.
The 50th edition of the WEF, between January 21 and 24, will have 2,800 participants gathered in the select Swiss ski resort, protected for the occasion with great safety measures.RELATED
The Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg returns to Davos a year after her first participation, now becoming an international figure in environmental defense.
A few days before the start of the forum, which brings together the world's political and economic elite every year, Thunberg will participate on January 17 in a demonstration in the Swiss city of Lausanne.
Also in Switzerland will be Chinese Vice Premier Han Zheng, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Ukrainian President Volodomir Zelenski, President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, as well as the President of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, of Colombia, Iván Duque, and that of Spain, Pedro Sánchez.
Donald Trump, who returns to Davos after his visit in 2017, will be accompanied by his daughter Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner.
The secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, the head of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, and the representative of Commerce, Robert Lighthizer, will also be in the US delegation.
However, the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who in 2013 called the forum "constellation of egos with gigantic mutual orgies of adulation" will not be. Yes Prince Charles of England will come.
