Taoiseach | Update on meeting at Davos
To ask the Taoiseach to report on his attendance at the recent meeting at Davos, with particular reference to future trends in global trade.
At last week’s Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, I had a wide range of engagements including an IDA Ireland reception; bilateral meetings with a number of international business including representatives of Intel, Amazon Web Services and Meta. These meetings were an opportunity for company executives to update me on progress with their operations in Ireland, and their future development plans, including in the current context of global job cuts across the industry.
I met with political leaders, including the President of Moldova; the leader of the opposition of Belarus; the Administrator of USAID, Samantha Power; leader of the UK Labour Party, Keir Starmer; a foreign policy-focused lunch hosted by the Washington Post; a panel discussion on Widening Europe’s Horizons, with fellow panellists Serbian President, Aleksandar Vuèiã, Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama, and European Parliament President, Roberta Metsola; and a dinner hosted by World Economic Forum President, Børge Brende. I also had a number of media engagements.
