** News From Aso Rock ** PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN IS IN SWITZERLAND TODAY FOR WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM

Goodluck Jonathan, President of Nigeria, and Doris Leuthard, President of Switzerland attend the State luncheon hosted by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to celebrate the first day of the 65th United Nations General Assembly, held at the U.N. headquarters in Manhattan.
 President Goodluck Jonathan has left Abuja, for the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.
At the forum, the president is expected to lead efforts aimed at attracting beneficial global participation in this year’s World Economic Forum (WEF) Africa, which would be hosted by Nigeria in Abuja from May 7 to 9.
Jonathan will be accompanied and supported by key members of the federal government’s Economic Management Team from the public and private sectors, as well as the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG).
The president is scheduled to host special events in Davos aimed at boosting attendance at the economic forum in Abuja by leading players in the world’s political and economic affairs who meet in the Swiss winter resort annually.
This was contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati.
The events, which would include an African soiree for participants, and an interactive session with financiers and industrialists, according to the statement, would also seek to further promote Nigeria’s immense economic potentials with a view to attracting more employment generating investments to the country.
The theme of the WEF on Africa in Abuja - “Forging Inclusive Growth, Creating Jobs” is very much in tandem with the federal government’s economic priorities for this year as enunciated in this year’s national budget proposals.
