Premier Pauline Marois has arrived in Switzerland to attend the Davos economic summit.

Marois will use the World Economic Forum to try to persuade political and economic decision-makers to invest in Quebec.

She is taking part in various meetings today and is scheduled to speak at a workshop tomorrow on responsible mining.

Marois is expected to take part in a discussion on how to close the economic gender gap.

The European trip will also see Marois visit London and Edinburgh, where she will meet with Scottish separatist leader Alex Salmond.

Prime Minister Stephen will not be in Davos this year, but Ottawa is represented by several cabinet ministers including Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird.
