'India Means Business', PM Modi's Mantra At Davos: 10 Points

Trump will be the first US leader since President Bill Clinton to attend the meeting in the Swiss Alps, which typically attracts some of world's wealthiest financiers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said the world wants to hear "directly from the horse's mouth" about India's policies and growth potential and he will feel proud to tell the success story of 125 crore Indians in Davos. Around 3,000 delegates from over 120 countries will attend this year's event that aims to rededicate leaders to developing a "shared narrative to create a shared future in a fractured world".

Abhishek said DIPP will also host a welcome reception for the WEF members, where 1,500 people are expected.

PM Modi will be accompanied by six union ministers - Arun Jaitley, Suresh Prabhu, Piyush Goyal, Dharmendra Pradhan, MJ Akbar and Jitendra Singh.

Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan will be visiting Switzerland on January 22 to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, press department at the Government reported.

"A widely held view is that a country's trade balance is a key measure of its global commercial success", said co-authors Harvard professor Robert Lawrence and Princeton fellow Yeling Tan in the paper, which is due to be presented and debated at Davos. "In addition to the keynote address, Modi will also have bilateral meeting with Swiss President Alain Berset".

The comments assume significance in the wake of several leaders expected to talk about various risks facing the world, including those from economic protectionism and differences amongst various world powers. He was speaking in an interview to a private news channel.

I am not all that sure he will be welcomed with open arms.
