PM heads to Swiss alps

World Economic Forum kicks off Wednesday

As the cold front sets in back home, Prime Minister Stephen Harper finds himself at an elite Swiss ski resort this week, schmoozing with CEOs and academic types. Soon though, he’ll be getting down to business. The ski lodge will host the 2010 Davos World Economic Forum, an economic policy conference attended by a range of world leaders. On Thursday, Harper will give a keynote address, discussing the two international summits that Canada will be hosting this summer: the G8 and the G20. Also on the agenda: global banking systems, stimulus funding, and Haiti’s recovery.
