Greek PM Tsipras arrived at Davos Forum on foot due to heavy snow storm
Greek PM Alexis Tsipras and his entourage were forced to walk two kilometres on to reach the building that is hosting the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland as the motor vehicles carrying the Greek mission were stuck in traffic. The heavy snow that fell in the Swiss city resulted in a long traffic jam, meaning the Greek PM had to reach the building on foot in order to avoid being late.
Mr. Tsipras met finally met with a slight delay with Greek-Australian businessman Andrew Liveris and the CEO of Delhaize, Dick Boer. This year’s meeting is expected to receive a total of 3,000 guests, including 70 heads of states or governments and 38 leaders of some of the largest international organisations. This year’s theme is titled “Creating a shared future in a fractured world”.
