G20 must be ready to compromise “without bending own positions too much” – Chancellor Merkel

7 July - Clean Energy Wire

The G20 leaders must show readiness for compromise at the Hamburg summit, “without bending their own positions too much”, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her opening remarks to leaders of the world’s largest economies, ahead of the first working session on global growth and trade. Millions of people were following the talks from all over the world in the hopes that the G20 would do their part to deal with their concerns, fears and needs, she said. The Sherpas had worked hard to find solutions in the run up to the summit and were facing another sleepless night ahead, said Merkel.
