US President Donald Trump is scheduled to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, which takes place from January 22 to 26 in that Swiss town, the White House said Tuesday.

“The president welcomes the opportunity to present his US program to leaders around the world,” said Sarah Sanders, spokeswoman for the executive.

“The president is eager to promote his policies to strengthen American companies, American industries and American workers at this year’s World Economic Forum,” he said.

The last US president to travel to Davos was the Democrat Bill Clinton, in the year 2000, while his successors preferred to avoid traveling to the famous ski resort for fear of appearing distant from their reality.

Every year numerous leaders and heads of companies attend the event. French President Emmanuel Macron also confirmed on January 3 that he will be in Davos, where he already traveled in 2016 as Economy Minister of Socialist President François Hollande.
