The Group of 20 leaders' summit is under way in coastal Hangzhou city, with the aim of coordinating policies among global economies and finding new growth drivers.
Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose country is hosting the G-20 summit for the first time, called for concrete actions to tackle global challenges such as sluggish demand and financial market volatility when he opened the meeting yesterday.
"We should turn the G-20 group into an action team, instead of a talk shop," he told leaders from the world's 20 major economies and guests, including Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
