Czech Prime Minister and ANO party leader Andrej Babiš is set to attend the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. On Thursday, he is scheduled to meet with his counterparts from Luxembourg, Portugal, Estonia and Israel. Among other things, he will be discussing European issues and Czech-Israeli cooperation in science, innovation and economy.
The Czech prime minister is also set to take part in a panel debate, focused on creating common visions for the EU and hold talks with the president of the UN General Assembly Miroslav Lajčák. Mr Babiš will also have lunch with other European politicians, including EU Commission President Jean Claude Juncker.
Mr Babiš said last week that the World Economic Forum was one of the most important meetings of world leaders and a welcome opportunity for the Czech Republic to make new partners and allies.
