G20 summit to be held via videoconference in November

NHK reported at noon that the Saudi Arabian government, this year’s G20 host, has announced that the summit will be held in the form of a videoconference on Nov. 21 and 22 on account of the coronavirus pandemic. According to the network, the G20 leaders are expected to discuss how to protect people’s lives and restore economic growth by addressing the social vulnerabilities that have been revealed as a result of the pandemic. Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato reportedly told the press this morning: “We are still conducting coordination with regard to Prime Minister Suga’s participation. But Japan hopes to convey the clear message that the G20 will play a key role in responding to the new coronavirus and restoring the global economy, resuming international people-to-people exchanges, and creating an international order in the post-coronavirus era.”
