G20 Coverage on CGTN America
The G20 summit will focus on development, infrastructure and food security, but the trade dispute between China and the U.S. is expected to get a lot of attention.
Leaders of the world's top economies agreed Saturday to repair the global trading system as they closed a Group of 20 summit that saw the Trump administration at odds with many allies over the Paris accord on climate change and issues like migration.
President Donald Trump joined the leaders of Canada and Mexico at a global meeting in Argentina on Friday to sign a revised North American trade pact, fulfilling a longstanding political promise with a deal he celebrated as a "groundbreaking achievement."
The evolution and expansion of the G20
The G20 is made up of 19 countries and the European Union (EU). The 19 countries are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Spain is a permanent invited guest to G20 meetings. Every year the country which holds the G20 presidency also invites countries to attend at its own discretion. This year Argentina has invited Chile and the Netherlands.
Countries which chair key regional groups – such as the African Union (AU), the Association for Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) – are generally invited to the summit. This year these regional groups will be represented by Rwanda, Singapore and Senegal, respectively. The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has also been invited by Argentina for this year's G20 and is represented by Jamaica. SOURCE:https://www.g20.org
