From the Document: "The Group of Twenty (G-20) is a multilateral forum for advancing international cooperation and coordination among 20 major advanced and emerging-market economies. […] Australia has focused the 2014 agenda [hyperlink] on global economic growth. In February 2014, the G-20 finance ministers and central bank governors pledged [hyperlink] to develop policies that would boost the G-20's collective GDP [gross domestic product] by more than two percentage points over the coming five years. [...] The G-20 summit will also continue previous work on issues including financial regulatory reforms; reforming the international tax system; increasing the representation of emerging-markets at the International Monetary Fund (IMF); and building energy market resilience. Climate change [hyperlink] will also likely be added to the agenda, despite initial opposition by Australian officials. Some NGOs [non-governmental organizations] [hyperlink] are calling for a G-20 commitment of resources for the international response to the Ebola outbreak."
