The U.S. President participates in the world economic forum in Davos, Stresa with the leaders of Britain and Israel, and European business circles
The US President Donald trump on Friday for the first time will deliver a speech at the world economic forum in Davos, which, as expected, it uses to promote its initiatives in the area of lowering taxes and freeing the economy from bureaucratic shackles.
Trump will try to convince skeptical world leaders that his policies are favorable to business and the world economy.
As expected, he tries to imagine America as a country that is experiencing economic revival and favorable for doing business.
“If you are rooting for their company or their country, nothing happens,” said trump on Thursday at the meeting with top managers of European companies.
As expected, trump will claim that his tax reform and the desire to eliminate unnecessary restrictions to business, brought the country prosperity and stimulated financial market.
“The bottom line is that we want prosperity and peace, – said trump on the eve of his speech in Davos. – Many companies are returning to the United States. We want a huge investment.”
Later, trump said in an interview with CNBC that he favoured a strong dollar and believes that the national currency will rise.
“The dollar will become stronger and stronger. Ultimately, I want to see a strong dollar,” he said.
Earlier in one of his tweets, trump said that he plans “to tell the world how wonderful America is and how good it going”.
“Our economy is on the rise and considering what I do, the situation will only improve, he added. – Our country finally wins again!”
White house staff said that trump will perform with the same message, and during other overseas trips in the past year: US wants strong ties with its allies, but want to reduce the chronic deficit in trade with many of them.
“America in the first place does not mean America alone, said White house senior adviser for Economics, Gary Kohn, who accompanies trump. – When we grow, the world grows. When the world grows, we grow. We are part of it. We are part of the global economy. And the President believes it.”
At the meetings in the framework of the world economic forum, the US President talked about the opportunities for business in the United States, said White house officials.
Trump will also speak about the investment opportunities in the US and to discuss cooperation in the field of national security, including the fight against “Islamic state” and the nuclear missile program of North Korea.
Kon said in his speech, trump will call on international companies to invest in the United States and to take advantage of lower corporate taxes, adopted on the initiative of the trump.
He also put emphasis on its policy of “America first” and will seek more equilibrium trade policy by the allies of the United States, said Kohn.
Trump believes that international trade agreements directed against the United States.
“The President will again advocate for fair economic competition, and will clearly understand that there can be no free and open trade, if countries are not responsible for violation of the rules,” said Kon told reporters.
Trump became the first in 20 years a U.S. President, who arrived at the forum in Davos. Participation in the forum gave him the opportunity to talk with representatives of the very elite “globalists”, which he sharply criticized during the election campaign of 2016.
In addition to meetings with world leaders trump also gave a small dinner for the representatives of European business circles on Thursday evening.
“The dinner participants run companies that have significant presence in the United States. They invest in our economy, we want them to continue to invest and encouraged others to join them,” said Kon.
