President Rinkēvičs and Commissioner Dombrovskis participating at World Economic Forum

Latvian State President Edgars Rinkēvičs will participate in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland from January 15-18, according to his diary.

"During the forum, the President is scheduled to participate in discussions on global risks, strengthening regional cooperation, as well as international security and support for Ukraine," said the presidential schedule.

"Also, while in Davos, the President will meet bilaterally with leaders of other countries and individual representatives of companies, as well as give interviews to international media," the bulletin said, without giving any specific names or details.

The WEF agenda does show that Latvia's European Commissioner, Valdis Dombrovskis, will take part in a discussion January 18 on trade and investment, plus another discussion about Russia shortly afterwards, though President Rinkēvičs is not listed on the WEF website as a participant in any of the livestreamed discussions.

The meeting convenes under the theme Rebuilding Trust. Though some discussions take place behind closed doors, sessions accessible to the wider public include over 200 livestreamed sessions – the full program is available here.
