Mr Mike Callaghan AM, PSM Director, G20 Studies Centre Lowy Institute for International Policy Are international economic summits all talk and no go? Wednesday 12 Feburary 2014 The Brisbane G20 Summit in November 2014 is said to be the most important international meeting Australia has ever hosted. But there is growing criticism that the G20 has failed to deliver the new age of international economic governance that was hoped shortly after the crisis. The G20 was expected to be the global economic steering committee. What will it take for Australia’s turn as G20 chair to be considered a success?
