G20 Summit in Seoul

Hi everyone,

I know I have said I would talk about the Hi Seoul Festival and my observations of Korean people in general, but I will talk about that some other time. I'm quite busy now because of the Midterms that are coming up next week. It looks like I'm having fun all the time and not doing anything at the university, but that's not true. Most of the time I'm writing papers, preparing for presentations and doing projects. But who wants to hear about that? =)

There is one thing I would quickly like to say. The G20 Summit 2010 will be held in Seoul. The dates for the world debates are November 11th and 12th.

There is an opportunity to record a video and ask the world leaders something relevant. If you could ask them something, what would you ask? I'm thinking about sending a video soon.
To the people who forgot what the G20 Summit is about, here's an introduction for you guys.

Twenty world leaders will come together in Seoul this November to discuss the state of the global economy as it emerges from the financial crisis. Together, they will take the necessary steps to reduce market volatility and move past the crisis, creating sustainable growth going forward. The fall meeting will be the fifth leaders summit and the first in an emerging country, reflecting shifts in the global economic balance and a growing understanding of the interdependence of countries and regions in the international financial system. In addition to heads of government from the twenty member countries, central bankers and finance ministers, the heads of key international institutions, including the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the Financial Stability Board, will participate in the  meetings, November 11-12. Member countries include the G8 developed economies along with emerging economies such as the Republic of Korea. Together, the members of the G20 represent over 85% of the world economy.
