ROUGH CUT, NO REPORTER NARRATION Leaders at the G20 summit had lunch outdoors following discussions at a retreat in Brisbane Parliament House on Saturday (November 15). With global security concerns on the rise in Ukraine and the Middle East, and high profile moves on battling climate change garnering headlines, G20 host Australia has sought to keep the focus on boosting world growth, fireproofing the global banking system and closing tax loopholes for giant multinationals. The G20 is made up of 19 individual countries - Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Britain, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United States - and the 28-member European Union (EU). The group, holding a summit in Brisbane, Australia, on November 15-16, accounts for 80 per cent of world trade and 85 per cent of global economic production.
