Ghana: Mahama to Attend 2014 World Economic Forum

President John Dramani Mahama will be joining a select number of world and business leaders this week at the 2014 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland.

This year's gathering is under the theme "The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business".

President Mahama is scheduled to chair a key session and also participate in various discussions on sub-themes, including climate change, the post-2015 development goals, the future of health and healthcare, the pressing youth unemployment challenge, and economic prospects in major emerging economies.

The President will also take the opportunity to hold a number of bilateral meetings with world leaders and business executives on the margins of the Davos gathering, which opens on Wednesday.

Accompanying President Mahama will be the Minister for Finance, Seth Terkper, and the Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Ambassador Thomas Kwesi Quartey.

Before arriving in Davos, President Mahama will participate in a high-level Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week programme - a large gathering focusing on tackling pressing issues such as renewable energy, water and the environment.
