The President and British Prime Minister are reportedly remaining optimistic about the outcome of Thursday’s G20 Summit.
Wired PR News – President Barack Obama is reportedly remaining optimistic that Thursday’s G20 Summit will produce a deal with worthwhile provisions for combating the recession. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Obama as well as British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who will host the Summit, predicted that Thursday’s outcome would help set the stage for tackling the global economic crisis despite mass skepticism and lowered expectations for there being major consensus regarding important issues.
Obama is quoted in the AP report as stating of the meeting of world economic powers, “I am absolutely confident that this meeting will reflect enormous consensus about the need to work in concert to deal with these problems.”
As noted by the AP, G-20 leaders have already reached some consensus regarding increasing aid for the International Monetary Fund for the benefit of emerging countries.
