The Chairman of the Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina has cancelled his visit to the world economic forum in Davos, which will be held from 23 to 26 January, reported RIA Novosti in the press service of the regulator.

The reason for the cancellation in a press-service explained.

According to the program of the forum, Nabiullina was announced on January 26 at the session «The End of Easy Money» («the End of easy money»). In January 2016, the head of the Central Bank has also cancelled his trip to the forum on the background of the sharp collapse of the ruble. Then, the dollar has updated the historical highs and has jumped to almost 86 rubles, and the Euro overcame another maximum from December 2014 to 93 rubles.

However, a number of Russian bankers have to take part in this forum. The head of VTB Andrey Kostin on 24 January stated session on «Securing a Common Future in Cyberspace» («Cybersecurity a shared future»), and the head of Sberbank German Gref declared at session of «Agile Governance in the Fourth Industrial Revolution» («Agile-the fourth industrial revolution»), to be held on January 25.

In January, the Chairman of the Board of Sberbank Stanislav Kuznetsov said in an interview with RIA Novosti that, under the auspices of the world economic forum can be created in February-March the Global centre for cyber security (Global Cyber Centre). According to him, Sberbank participates in the discussion of the principles of creating such a center. Kuznetsov then said that the first principles of the construction of a Global Cyber Centre has already been discussed last year in Geneva at the conference with the participation of high-level representatives.

During all days of the forum in Davos will be to work the official Russian residence, «Russian house», which will bring together leaders of the business community, well-known politicians, economists, and scientists and representatives of creative professions. The official government delegation in 2018 will be headed by Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich.
