The G-20 Pittsburgh Summit launches a new blog.
This week, leaders of the G-20 will gather in Pittsburgh to discuss key issues in the global economy. President Obama called the gathering an important opportunity to continue the work of confronting the global economic crisis.
Colleagues from the White House, U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of the Treasury have already been blogging about the Pittsburgh Summit.
Brad Setser tells us that the G-20 countries will take stock of their efforts so far to address the crisis, where we are on the road to recovery, and review their efforts to deliver on the promises made at the London Summit in April.
Danny Stoian gives a behind the scenes look at the logistics of the summit, and Tiffany Smith provides a perspective on the many individuals coming together to make the summit happen. Elliot Repko tells us about what it is like to support a delegation at the summit.
Mark Sobel reminds us that the G-20 has made a lot of progress, but there is still much to do. With recovery in sight, the world community needs to begin laying a foundation for the 21st century global economy.
