G20 world leader’s summit takes place in Osaka, Japan

The G20 summit begins in Osaka, Japan today, with much of the focus on the meeting between Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The USA and China have been involved in an escalating trade war over the last few months, after tensions were sparked with Chinese tech giant Huawei. The USA put in place a blacklist on Chinese tech imports, which has had a significant impact on business.

The G20 summit will be taking place in Osaka’s International Exhibition Center, or INTEX Osaka. It is the first G20 summit to take place in Japan.

The summit’s eight main themes will be global economy, trade and investment, innovation, environment and energy, employment, women’s empowerment, development and health.

The Japanese government said it is “determined to carry out strong leadership in advancing discussions toward resolving the myriad issues now facing the international community.”
