German Chancellor Angela Merkel will speak about the future of Europe at the World Economic Forum in Davos but will leave before US President Donald Trump is due to arrive, her spokesman said Friday.

He said, it will be a 24-hour visit but a very focused one.

Swiss President Alain Berset will have an official meeting with President Trump, it has already been confirmed.

"If you consider only these two things (GST and demonetisation) as my governments work, it will be a big injustice to me", he said.

In a statement, Mr Khan said: "It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance".

The two leaders will also discuss, among other trade and business matter, the envisaged free trade agreement between India and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), of which Switzerland is a member.

Talking about the business engagements of Indian leaders in Davos, Ramesh Abhishek, Secretary, Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), said that Prime Minister will also host a round table dinner on January 22 for 60 top CEOs, including 40 from global corporates and 20 from India. Interestingly, US ambassador to India Kenneth Juster had recently said India could become an alternative hub for American businesses in the Indo-Pacific region as a number of US companies are facing some difficulties in doing business in China.

Abhishek said the reforms that have been taken in the last few years will be showcased in Davos.

Both the countries are set to participate in the WEF annual meet.
