He met most of the European premiers and had bilateral talks with premiers of Luxembourg, Portugal, Estonia, Israel and the Chairman of the UN General Assembly.

“I am very pleased at participating in the World Economic Forum. It is a unique event bringing together hundreds of important people, premiers and presidents from all over the world, EU commissioners, finance ministers, representatives of the International Monetary Fund, OECD as well as big companies. I regard it as a great and efficiently spent time. In a short time span you can meet many important partners with whom you can have a coffee and discuss what is needed and, therefore, I regard the whole event as positive as could be,” said Premier Andrej Babiš.
