This spring, leaders from 20 of the world’s largest economies will come together for the G20 summit in the United Kingdom. They’ll be discussing the global financial system, and working on setting a course for the world to get out of the financial crisis. It is crucial that a representative from the African Union be present at those meeting to represent many of the world’s poorest nations, and give voice to their concerns.
As host of the upcoming G20 summit, Prime Minister Gordon Brown can invite a representative of the African Union to participate.
