Davos Diary: Thursday

Chris Perry

The latest dispatch from our anonymous on-site correspondent in Davos, Switzerland, for the 2013 World Economic Forum. Check out the rest of the series here

Reuters interviewed Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, directly in front of the Reuters Library this morning. No sooner had the cameras packed up than UK Prime Minister David Cameron and his posse walked by on their way to the Congress Center, while an armored van with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev exited in the opposite direction. Our prime location at the Davos Library ensures that everyone entering or exiting the Congress Center passes in front of Reuters.

Davos Today continued another banner day of live television interviews. To add to our politico sightings, the Prime Minister of Sweden came in to tape this morning, followed by the Prime Minister of Norway this afternoon. Peter Sands, Chairman of Standard Chartered, is taping an interview now as I type.

Our Thomson Reuters Mountain Lunch, to be held at a mountain restaurant, will take place this Saturday, the closing day of Davos. The guest list of clients and media is filled to bursting, with a wait-list!
