Greek Prime Minister attends World Economic Forum in Switzerland


On Wednesday, 17 January, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visited Davos, Switzerland for the 54th annual meeting with the World Economic Forum.

Ekathimerini shared that according to government sources, Mitsotakis discuss and highlight Greece’s role as a stable and reliable force in Europe  despite a period of conflicts, uncertainty, multiple crises, and geopolitical realities.

The World Economic Forum’s theme this year is all about “Rebuilding Trust”, which follows the upcoming European Parliament elections in June this year, and the US presidential election later this year.

At this meeting, Mitsotakis engaged with top business leaders and senior executives from major technology and energy companies who have previously shown an interest in Greece’s investment potential.

“With the restored investment grade and growth rates surpassing the EU average, the prime minister aims to present the Greek economy’s prospects and the government’s goals for the new four-year term,” a government source stated.

Mitsotakis is also expected to participate in a panel discussion on the EU’s Green Deal later today (Thursday), where he will be joined by Vice President of the European Commission, Maros Sefcovic. 

An additional discussion with Foreign Policy’s editor-in-chief, Ravi Agrawal is also to be expected.
