“This framework should be based on cooperation and multilateralism,” Macron said. “This new framework is the unique way to protect our interests in the long run.”
Macron already wooed executives including Google Inc. CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook Inc. Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg at the Palace of Versailles this week as he sought to attract investment. In Davos, there were signs that he’s succeeding in shifting executives’ views of France.
Macron’s appeal to investors in Davos emphasized Europe’s commitment to the multilateral system and political stability, and he called on leaders to rethink the rules of the global economy.
He was due to meet with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan’s King Abdullah II in bilateral side meetings, according to an agenda provided by his office.
