Viola Amherd to meet Ursula von der Leyen in Davos

If the blockage on the institutional agreement has prevented such a meeting for years, the two presidents will indeed discuss this Monday evening.

The President of the Confederation Viola Amherd will meet her counterpart from the European Commission on the sidelines of the Davos Forum this Monday evening.

Switzerland and the EU will show in Davos (GR) the warming of their relations with the new negotiating mandate. The President of the Confederation Viola Amherd and that of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen will see each other on Monday evening.

The discussion was confirmed by Commission spokesperson Eric Mamer. Such a format was common a few years ago in the Graubünden station on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

But the blockage on the institutional agreement has prevented such a formal meeting in recent years. The last one dates back to 2020 between Simonetta Sommaruga and Mrs von der Leyen.

And in Davos, the two parties, who wish to relaunch negotiations between them quickly, will increase the number of dialogues. Federal Councilor Ignazio Cassis must see the Vice-President of the Commission Maros Sefcovic, in charge of the Swiss file, and his colleague Guy Parmelin must discuss with the Commissioner for Innovation, Research and Education Iliana Ivanova.
