G20 policymakers prepare for summit

G20 policymakers are promising to keep economic support packages in place.

They will also seek to reassure financial markets with credible plans to withdraw stimulus packages when appropriate.

The meeting in London has already attracted protesters linked to various pressure groups like War on Want.

Their message? They’ve had enough of governments saying money is king. They want people to come first.

Representatives from Brazil, China, Russia and India are meeting in the sidelines ahead of the main gathering.

The world’s economy has improved since the last summit in April. But not by much and policymakers are cautious about declaring victory.
