A senior Chinese official said that at the Toronto summit the leaders are expected to discuss a wide range of issues, including the world economic situation, the European debt crisis, reform of international financial institutions, world trade and the strengthening of financial regulations.
"China hopes that the G20 members at the Toronto summit would fully implement the Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth and enhance communication and coordination of macro-economic policies to support the global economic recovery," Cui Tiankai, vice foreign minister of China, said at a press conference Friday.
He said that G20 members should push the IMF to finish a new round of quota reforms to give more representation to emerging markets and developing countries before the Seoul summit in November. The members also should improve the international financial system and deepen the reform of the international regulatory system.
In addition, the G20 leaders also should pay greater attention to development problems and provide political support to the United Nations' high-level meeting on the Millennium Development Goals in September and oppose trade protectionism and promote the completion of the Doha round of trade talks, Cui added.
