No G-20 Trip
Government’s spokesman Paweł Gras confirmed that Poland will not participate in the G-20 summit starting in London on April 2. The country, with the rest of the EU, will be represented by the current president of the bloc - the Czech Republic.
“The point of such a move is for the EU to speak with one voice” Graś was quoted by the news agency PAP. He also informed that the Czech Republic received precise instructions from member states on the topic.
According to earlier reports in the Polish media, English diplomats claimed that this Poland proved to be much better prepared to weather the crisis and hence may have a valuable input in the meeting.
The G-20 is a group of finance ministers and central bank governors from 20 economies: 19 of the world's 25 largest national economies plus the European Union, World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. During their meeting in London they are to prepare a plan of revival for world economy and create the fundamentals of the new economic order of the world.
