Argentine President Mauricio Macri delivered the opening remarks of the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires on Friday, which will run until December 1.
«It's been 10 years since leaders met for the first time, gathered in the US in the spirit of creating this forum of dialogue, which made it possible, at the time, to prevent a worsening of the financial crisis,» Macri said to the leaders gathered at the... Еще first G20 held in South America.
In the same vein, Macri demanded that leaders act with the 'same urgency' as they did in 2008, when the financial crisis struck, despite there being a different agenda.
«Each country will have its own preferences, values and interests. But we all agree on something: We want to foster sustainable development,» he continued.
In his final remarks, Macri urged the leaders to be guided by Nelson Mandela's legacy in a bid to end global poverty by 2030.
