World Economic Forum: VP Shettima jets out to Davos


Vice President Kashim Shettima has jetted out of the country to attend the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Shettima, who left Abuja on Sunday, will join other political and business leaders from across the globe for the week-long meeting, which will take place on January 15–19, 2024.

The forum engages leading political, business, cultural and other leaders to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

The vice president’s media aide, Stanley Nkwocha, said in a statement issued in Abuja that his principal will also co-chair the launch of the private sector action plan for the African Continental Free Trade Area, AfCTA.

He is also expected to hold high-level discussions with the Managing Director of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Makhtar Diop and the Prime Minister of Vietnam, Pham Minh Chinh, among others.


“Also on the sidelines of the annual meeting, Shettima will chair a roundtable dialogue on Nigeria’s economic path. He will also attend a special session dedicated to building trust in the global energy transition programme,” Nkwocha added.
