WEF Committee  

Processing current issues revolving around the World Economic Forum generally requires establishing clear lines of responsibility. Primarily impacted is the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the Canton of Grisons as the agency responsible for economic issues in general and tourism in particular as well as the Department of Justice, safety and health of the Canton of Grisons as the agency responsible for event police security.
 
To this end, the government formed a WEF Committee on February 6, 2001. The committee is chaired by the head of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the Canton of Grisons, Government Councillor Hansjörg Trachsel. The committee is tasked with processing all issues involving the World Economic Forum, cooperating with all its partners, making any necessary decisions as well as drafting fundamental decisions for the entire government. The WEF Committee is also the point-of-contact for the press and information distribution. A headquarters has been established within the WEF Committee to support all the committee’s activities.
