Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and French President Emmanuel Macron are on the long list of world and business leaders also attending the Davos summit next week.

The two leaders are unlikely to have a meeting in Davos mainly due to their different days of attendance at the forum meeting.

However, the Prime Minister rued that at times there is less criticism and more allegations.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's delegation to the World Economic Forum at Davos will offer yoga classes on the icy slopes, the foreign ministry said Friday, the latest high-profile attempt to promote India's traditions overseas.

"Certainly, we will increase Russia's role - participation of Russian Federation in certain projects related to development of new technologies will be announced during Davos", the minister said.

A large White House contingent is expected to go as well, from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, to the secretaries of labor, transportation and energy and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

He said that India as a market is an attraction destination for global companies and world now wants to engage directly with India.

Modi will also host a dinner for global CEOs tomorrow. He was speaking in an interview to a private news channel.
