Zimbabwe Invited To Participate At The World Economic Forum In Davos

Zimbabwe has been invited to participate at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland next week.

The forum runs from May 22 to 26 and this will be Zimbabwe’s second time attending the WEF since the coming in of President Emmerson Mnangagwa. 

President Mnangagwa is expected to attend the WEF which will bring together over 2 000 world leaders, presidents and chief executive officers of top global companies, global media outlets and business experts from around the globe, all committed to a Davos spirit of improving the state of the world.

Switzerland Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia, Mr Niculin Jager, confirmed Zimbabwe’s invitation after a closed-door meeting with Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Ambassador Fredrick Shava at his Munhumutapa offices in Harare yesterday.

Ambassador Jager said Davos provides Zimbabwe with a platform to market itself to the world. He said:

I met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade where we spoke about the road to Davos. As you are aware that next week the World Economic Forum will take place in Davos and Zimbabwe will attend the forum. 

His Excellency President Mnangagwa and his delegation will have meetings with Swiss industries, companies as well as with Swiss authorities.

We are looking forward to provide a platform for the Zimbabwean delegation to meet with the Swiss authorities and also leading Swiss companies.

Switzerland remains one of the main European investors with a strong economic footprint and commitment to the food, shoe, tourism, construction, energy, pharmaceutical, natural resources and agriculture sectors in the country.
