"The G20 mechanism is not restricted to seeking solutions for global economic governance and promoting world economic growth. It has also expanded to areas such as employment, education, culture, and the environment. As the G20 plays a more and more prominent role on the international stage, it has gradually become a platform for consultations, formulating new international rules, and constructing the global governance system."

"Against the backdrop of increasingly intense worldwide uncertainties, the entire world is expecting China, the world's second largest economy, to play a more prominent role in international affairs. At the 2016 G20 Hangzhou Summit, China's President Xi Jinping put forward China's plans and proposals for tackling global challenges, which won acclaim and approval from various sides. So we are all looking forward to China's leader putting forward new plans and proposals that can lead the trend of the times, and promote global governance at this years' G20 summit."
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the formalization of the G20 Leaders' Summit mechanism.
It is the first time a South American country has hosted the summit.
