BEIJING (News Desk) – Eleventh G20 Summit is set to start in Hangzhou, China on Sunday.

The theme of the two-day summit will be “Toward an Innovative, Invigorated, Interconnected and Inclusive World Economy”.

China is hopeful to cement its standing as a global power by hosting leaders from the world’s biggest economies, but suspects the West and its allies will try to deny Beijing its rightful place on the international stage.

The members include 19 individual countries—Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India,Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States — along with the European Union (EU).
