GROUP OF 20 (G20)
The G-20 is the G-7 plus developing nations such as Brazil, China, India, and Russia. The G-20's members represent two-thirds of the world's people and 85 percent of its economy. Since 2007, the media has covered each G-20 summit. That recognizes the members' role as significant drivers of the world economy.
The G-20's primary mandate is to prevent future international financial crises. It seeks to shape the global economic agenda. It lends the perspective of Asian and Latin American growing economies. That "broadens the scope of international economic and financial cooperation.”
