    [WSK] G20 Seoul Summit Special 2

    What does the hosting of the G20 Seoul Summit mean to Korea? For a very long time, Korea has never been given a chance to establish international structures or frameworks. It had a challenging time just acquiring a membership to international organizations such as to the UN and the OECD. But with the hosting of the G20 Seoul Summit coming November, Korea has now opened a new diplomatic horizon for itself. Korea can now add its own voice to the global economic order as a rule-setter, not as a mere rule-follower; has moved from the periphery to the center of the global stage.

    [WSK] G20 Seoul Summit Special 1

    About the G20 (Group of 20) From the G7 to the G20 The G20 was formally established at the G7 Finance Ministers meeting on 26 September 1999. The emergence of the G20 stemmed from the changing economic reality a response both to the financial crises of the late 1990s and to a growing recognition that key emerging countries were not adequately included in the core of global economic discussion and governance. So, the original G7 (composed of the US, Japan, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada and Italy) grew to the G20. At the third G20 summit held in Pittsburgh on September 24-25, 2009, the G20 was designated as the premier forum for international economic cooperation. Today, the G20 represents two thirds of the worlds population and nearly 88% of the worlds economy. For amore
