He noted that some developed countries are struggling with serious sovereign debt problems, while emerging economies are confronted with inflation and drastically fluctuating cross-border capital flows.
Under such circumstances, all members of the international community should follow the all-in-the-same-boat spirit and join hands to ride out the current woes, he stressed.
Besides China, the G20 comprises Brazil, the US and Canada, Argentina, Australia, India, France, South Korea, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, Britain, and the European Union.
