G20 Working Dinner: Global Economy and Framework I

G20 leaders begin their G20 Seoul Summit discussions at a working dinner at the National Museum of Korea on Thursday, November 11, 2010, immediately following the Welcome Reception. Dinner begins at 7:00 p.m. and  is expected to last approximately an hour and half.
In his opening remarks, President Lee Myung-Bak will welcome his guests, then introduce the topic for the dinner, ‘Global Economy and Framework I’. International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn will then report on the state of the global economy, followed by a general discussion scheduled to continue into the first Friday morning session, ‘Global Economy and Framework II’.

 

President Lee is expected to urge the leaders to use the Summit sessions to work toward a meaningful outcome, to offer direction and a vision for the global economy.

 

At the welcome dinner itself, ancient Korean pottery – famously shaped like ducks – adorns the dining table.
