José Manuel Albares to take part in a panel on the “Geopolitical Panorama” at the Davos Forum

May 23, 2022
​On Tuesday, 24 May, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares, will take part in the panel entitled “The Geopolitical Panorama” at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, held in the Swiss town of Davos, which will return to its traditional in-person format this year. Minister Albares is part of the delegation travelling with the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, to attend the forum involving the participation of some 2,000 leaders to exchange perspectives on the global situation with the aim of establishing the start of a new era of global responsibility and cooperation.

The panel, entitled “The Geopolitical Panorama”, which the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs will take part in, will also include speeches from the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda; the Ministers for Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia, Prince Faisal Bin Farhan Al Saud; of Finland, Pekka Haavisto; and of Pakistan, Hina Rabbani Khar; and the Chair of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs of the United States, Gregory Meeks. 

The panel, which will be broadcast via streaming, will analyse the implications for the main global powers and small States of the largest geopolitical crisis since the end of World War Two, caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the rise in multipolarity and the threat of new conflicts.

During his trip to Davos, Minister Albares will also hold several bilateral meetings: on Monday, with Senator Bob Méndez, Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee of the United States; and on Tuesday with the CEO Tik Tok, Shou Zi Chew. 

His schedule is completed with the meetings he will hold with Congressman Gregory Meeks, who he also met with back in January in Washington DC, and with the President for Global Affairs at Meta, the former Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nick Clegg.
