Forty world leaders will descend upon Hangzhou this Sunday for the Group of 20 (G-20) summit to reaffirm their dedication to global growth in a post-Brexit world.
Building an open financial system, promoting the global economic recovery and coordinating monetary policies are among the main topics to be discussed under this year's theme of building an innovative, invigorated, interconnected and inclusive world economy.
Created in 1999, the G-20 is aimed at economic cooperation but expectations for concrete results are low this year.
"Unlike previous meetings of the G-20 which have focused largely on crisis management, the goals of this meeting are less well-defined. The risk is that nothing much will be achieved. Nevertheless, the G-20, despite a lame duck U.S. President, a divided Europe and rampant anti-globalization sentiment worldwide, is more important than ever," remarked Mark Melatos, associate professor at the University of Sydney.
Here are few of the key themes set to dominate talks during the two-day event.
