Leaders of the world’s major developed and developing countries, as well as institutions, wrapped up the 2-day G20 Seoul Summit on 12th November with a joint communiqué.

Attending the Seoul Summit were leaders from the G20 member countries, the European Union, the IMF, the World Bank, the UN, the World Trade Organisation, the OECD, the African Union, the ASEAN and the International Labour Organisation, as well as from five non-G20 countries - Ethiopia, Malawi, Singapore, Spain and Vietnam.

The G20 Summit deliberated extensively on the global economic crisis and climate change.

Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said that the understanding reached among G20 countries embraced the position of Africa. He said that even though Africa did not participate in the G20 Summit that was held in Washington DC, it presented its own alternatives in the London and Pittsburg Summits.
