G20 leaders including Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, US President Donald Trump, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe were among those who were seen arriving to the second day of the G20 summit in Osaka on Saturday.
Director of International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde arrived alongside Argentina President Mauricio Macri, while Chinese President Xi Jinping was spotted arriving late at the conference.
“While globalisation and innovation bring about enormous benefits, there are also voices of concern about a widening gap that they entail. We must sincerely accept those voices and deliver the fruits of growth to all corners of the world,” said Abe in his opening remarks.
Leaders of 19 of the most influential countries in the world and the European Union are meeting in Osaka on Friday and Saturday for the 14th Group of 20 summit to discuss climate change, free trade, and economic inequalities among other issues.
