The authorities of the Canton Grisons are highly pleased: The 45th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos once again was held under optimum conditions. The Canton Grisons as host and Davos as convention venue offered ideal conditions for the annual meeting of the WEF as well as many other events in Davos.

The Canton Grisons and Davos underscored again the importance of Davos as a convention venue while further promoting Switzerland’s reputation as a safe and peaceful location for dialogue and exchange of views on current political and economic challenges.

Once again, the 2015 WEF annual meeting was again well attended. Numerous leading personalities from business, politics, and the sciences came together in the Grisons mountains. The entire Federal Council as well as all members of the Government of the Canton Grisons took the opportunity to hold discussions within a national and international environment.

Following the attacks in Paris, the threat level to Switzerland remains elevated. The head of security at the WEF reacted accordingly in the runup to the annual meeting through, among other activities, heightened controls and increased information gathering for all deployed forces. The measures taken proved to be correct. This year, various small demonstrations took place, all of them peaceful. The Government of the Canton Grisons is satisfied that these challenges were mastered and the entire week was peaceful and quiet.

The World Economic Forum in Davos would not be possible without the support of the various partners and the local populace. The WEF Committee for the Government of the Canton Grisons thus would like to extend its gratitude to all participants, and to the security forces of the police, the armed forces, and the border guard in particular.
