Gov’t chief to attend G20 Leaders’ Summit

VGP – PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc will attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit on November 21-22 at the invitation of Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Thursday.

November 19, 2020 11:54 AM GMT+7

This year’s summit will be held virtually under the theme “Realizing Opportunities of the 21st Century for All”.

“Empowering people,” “Safeguarding the planet,” and “Shaping new frontiers” are the central focus of the summit.  

The G20 has contributed over US$21 billion to support the production, distribution, and access to diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines.

In a bid to safeguard the global economy from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the G20 countries have also injected $11 trillion (€9.5 trillion).

Viet Nam participated in a G20 Summit for the first time in 2020 as the ASEAN Chair.

In 2017, the country was invited to the G20 Summit in Germany.

Last year, PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc and his spouse arrived in Osaka, Japan for the 14th G20 Summit. 

The G20 is the premier forum for international economic cooperation. It gathers  ​leaders of the world’s largest economies to discuss financial and socioeconomic issues.
