President due in Davos Wednesday: official

Tehran, Jan 21, IRNA - Presidential advisor here on Tuesday announced that President Hassan Rouhani will travel to Davos, a Swiss resort, on Wednesday to participate in the World Economic Forum, slated for January 22-25.

Talking to IRNA, Mohammad Reza Sadeq underlined that President Rouhani will also attend several news programs and hold talks with several world officials on the sideline of the gathering.



The World Economic Forum was founded in January 1971 when a group of European business leaders met under the patronage of the European Commission and European industrial associations.



It has provided a critical platform for promoting peace and reconciliation in many parts of the world, deepening understanding between East and West before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall, introducing emerging economies such as China and India to the international community, and bringing to the fore the latest trends and developments in many fields.



The Forum has also been the catalyst for a number of significant global initiatives, in the area of environmental awareness and health.
