THE G20 Summit looks to bring stability in the global economy.
This year the country of Indonesia is hosting the G20 Summit.
Which countries are attending the G20 Summit?
The Group of 20 was formed in 1999 with the goal of discussing policies to ensure international financial stability.
On the G20’s official website it is stated that the following countries are set to attend:
- Republic of Korea
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
- The United Kingdom
- The United States
- The European Union
The country of Spain has also been invited as a permanent guest.
The Washington Post reported that Western nations are reportedly attempting to exclude Moscow from the G20.
The first G20 meeting took place on September 26, 1999, in Cologne, Germany.
Their website states that each year the Presidency invites guest countries, which take full part in that year’s summit.
Each year the presidency of the G20 rotates, giving each country a chance to “ensure the continuity of the agenda.”
Will Russia attend the G20 Summit this year?
Despite many other nations not wanting Russia to attend the summit, Vladimir Putin has made it clear that he wants to attend.
“It will depend on many, many things, including the Covid situation, that is getting better. So far, his intention is … he wants to,” Ambassador Lyudmila Vorobieva said of Putin’s attendance.
The ambassador also added that the war in Ukraine will not be the focus of the discussion at the G20 Summit.
“Not only the G-20; many organizations in the West are now trying to expel Russia,” Vorobieva said.
“The reaction of the West is absolutely disproportional.”
When is the G20 Summit taking place?
The global economic summit will take place over the course of two days in 2022.
The dates for the G20 Summit will be on Sunday, Oct 30, 2022, through Monday, Oct 31, 2022.
Some of this year’s priority issues listed on the site include global health architecture, digital transformation, and sustainable energy transition.
On November 14-15 2008, the leaders of the G20 countries gathered for the first G20 Summit.
