DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- The 2011 annual meeting of the World Economic Forum is approaching its end on Saturday. Economic outlook and the Doha Round of global trade talks took the central stage.

The following are some noticeable quotes from the day's discussion.

"I think the eurozone has turned the corner. Let's not short Europe and let's not short the eurozone." -- French Economy Minister Christine Lagarde

"The euro will be stable and there will be no big shocks." -- German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble

"There was a sense that we are in the endgame and that if Doha is done, it needs to be done this year. The price for failure of the Round would be too high for each of us and the multilateral system as a whole." -- Swiss Economy Minister Johann Schneider-Amman
