Apple CEO Tim Cook is in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum this week, and today he met with Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš.
Babiš shared photos of his meeting with Cook on Facebook (via Letemsvetemapplem.eu), and provided some details on what the two discussed. According to Babiš, the two talked about technology in the Czech Republic, also touching on topics such as AI and the economy.
Cook was “thrilled” that there are 500 researchers working in AI in the Czech Republic, and when Babiš asked about an Apple Store for Prague, Cook said that Apple was indeed prepared to open a new Apple Store in the city.
Babiš said the ideal place for the Apple Store would be the Ministry of Regional Development building in the Old Town Square, but should Apple move forward with plans, it’s not clear where the store would be located. Apple currently has no retail stores in the Czech Republic.
Cook yesterday met with the Crown Prince of Dubai, and earlier in the week, Cook met with the Armenian Prime Minister and had dinner with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and more.
