In a few days, the leaders of Group of 20 economies will arrive in Australia for the Brisbane summit.The challenge for G-20 leaders is clear – to lift growth, boost jobs and strengthen financial resilience. At the 2011 G-20 summit, leaders discussed the necessity of political will.The fiscal stimulus provided by the G-20 during the global financial crisis helped prevent the collapse of the world economy.Encouraging greater levels of investment in every G-20 nation is essential to address the $1 trillion annual infrastructure investment gap. With a membership that is responsible for almost 85 percent of global GDP and three-quarters of world trade, the G-20 can play a crucial role in doing that.When Australia assumed the G-20 presidency a year ago, our aim was for G-20 leaders to come together in Brisbane prepared and equipped to deliver real actions and real economic reforms that would make a real and measurable difference to the global economy and to the peoples of the world.
