DAVOS - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau mingled with the global elite and celebrities Kevin Spacey, Leonardo DiCaprio and rock star Bono at a private gala last night at this posh mountain resort.
Trudeau has received a warm welcome at the World Economic Forum, meeting top executives from Facebook, Microsoft, Royal Dutch Shell, and billionaire investor George Soros.
He has another full day of high level meetings planned Thursday. Here's a glimpse:
Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors: The uncertain future of GM's Oshawa plant expected to be to be raised, and Trudeau could make the case that a sinking loonie may be an opportunity to invest in the Ontario plant.
Cyprus Misty, Chairman of India-based Tata Motors: Its "Nano" sells for $2,500, making it the cheapest car in the world. The automaker aims to expand with a fleet of vehicles to meet North American safety standards.
Meetings were also scheduled with the Chairman of energy company Welspun, the CEO of drug company Novartis, and the President of Switzerland.
He also hosts a panel with young entrepreneurs.
