Trump's Davos Trip Is 'Day-to-Day' During Government Shutdown

A No 10 spokesman said: "The Prime Minister will have a bilateral meeting with President Trump in the margins of the World Economic Forum at Davos in Switzerland next week". Along with Ramaphosa and business leaders, other South Africans going include finance minister Malusi Gigaba; minister in the presidency for planning, monitoring and evaluation Jeff Radebe; minister of economic development Ebrahim Patel; minister of trade and industry Rob Davies; minister of public works Nkosinathi Nhleko and minister of global relations and cooperation Maite Nkoana Mashabane.

President Donald Trump was also scheduled to attend, meet with world leaders and deliver a big speech, but the administration has since backed off on the certainty of the trip.

Trump will be just one of a record line-up of political leaders, from Angolan President João Lourenço to Zimbabwe's Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Besides, he will hold a bilateral meeting with Swiss President Alain Berset, among other pull-asides, as per the government officials. The organization aims to improve the world through public-private cooperation by engaging the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global agendas.
