“As anti-G20 protests begin, Merkel says growth must be inclusive“

Reuters / German government

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says the upcoming G20 meeting in Hamburg will focus not only on the economic growth, but also on sustainable growth, Reuters writes, quoting a podcast of the Federal Press Office. "We've got to have a 'win-win' situation for everyone. The issues obviously revolve around: how do we achieve inclusive or sustainable growth?", Reuters quotes Merkel as saying. "We need the climate protection agreement, open markets and improved trade agreements in which consumer protection, social and environmental standards are upheld." Leaders of G20 countries will meet in Hamburg on July 7-8 under the current German presidency, where police are bracing for protests.
