OREANDA-NEWSUS Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin will lead the US delegation at the World Economic Forum (WEF), which will be held January 21-24 in Davos. This is stated in a statement released on Wednesday by the White House press service.

The delegation will include, among others, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, US Trade Representative Robert Lightheiser, and Presidential Advisor Jared Kushner. Earlier, Reuters, citing a source familiar with the schedule of US leader Donald Trump, reported that the US president would visit the WEF. This information has not been officially confirmed. Last year, Trump was forced to cancel a trip to the WEF due to the budget crisis in the United States, as a result of which the work of the federal government was partially suspended.

Davos Forum is an annual meeting of representatives of the world political and business elite. Since the 1980s, the event has been one of the major international events of the year. In addition to politicians and businessmen, representatives of public organizations, academia, cultural figures and media leaders participate in discussions at the WEF.
