G20 Mexico Summit 2012

The seventh G20 summit, which took place in Los Cabos, Mexico, on 18-19 June 2012 was the first summit hosted by Mexico and the second to be hosted by an emerging power member of the G20.

The Los Cabos Summit sought to strengthen and sustain the still fragile global economy recovery, as it copes with old and new fiscal and financial challenges in Europe and America, slowing economic growth in Asia and strains in the global economy as a whole. It also looked at advancing the G20’s broad agenda of strengthening sustainable and balanced growth.

Featuring articles from leaders including Mexican president Felipe Calderón, Korean president Lee Myung-bak, Australian prime minister Julia Gillard and South African president Jacob Zuma. Plus submissions from respected commentators such as OECD secretary general Angel Gurría, African Development Bank president Donald Kaberuka and International Energy Agency executive director Maria van der Hoeven.
