"The President welcomes opportunities to advance his America First agenda with world leaders", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Tuesday in a statement.

Davos comes as Trump faces crucial decisions about his worldwide economic agenda including whether to rework or withdraw the North American Free Trade Agreement, a move that has many world leaders on edge.

The theme for this year's conference is "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World". French President Emmanuel Macron has already announced his plans to attend. Modi and Trump met twice previous year - in Washington DC and in Manila at the Asean meet.

American administrations regularly send representatives to Davos, but presidents often decline to attend.

The gathering at an Alpine ski resort is a redoubt of globalist, free-trade thinking starkly at odds with Trump's worldview.

The White House confirmed that Mr Trump will attend the summit of political and business elites in the Alps town whose name has become synonymous with the annual gathering of the rich and powerful.

In a separate statement, Klaus Schwab, the founder of the forum, said Trump would offer a "direct perspective" on the U.S.'s priorities and that the president would be accompanied by key Cabinet ministers and USA lawmakers. He withdrew the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement between Pacific Rim countries, and pulled out of the Paris climate accord, a commitment to reduce carbon emissions. Presidents George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Barack Obama never attended the meeting.

Clinton first attended the event in 2000, the forum's 30th anniversary.
