Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will attend the World Economic Forum in Davos next week, accompanied by five key ministers, his office announced on Monday.


He will be joined by International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland, Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, and Treasury Board President Scott Brison.
"At the World Economic Forum, we will signal the return of a more positive, open, and innovative Canada to the international business community," Trudeau said in a statement.
The January 20th to 23rd conference will be Trudeau's fourth international meeting since coming to power in October elections.
At the summit, the prime minister said he would highlight his administration's stimulus plans, including "historic investments in transit, green and social infrastructure."
His government's first budget is expected in the coming months.
