What is your reaction to the G8 and G20 meetings?
Leaders at the G20 summit in Canada have agreed to cut national budget deficits by 2013. What do you think about these cuts?
Representatives of the G8 industrialised nations meeting in and near Toronto, discussed security issues as well as plans to improve the health of women and children in poorer regions of the world.
Host Stephen Harper, the Canadian prime minister, said at the G20 on Saturday, that despite cuts, short-term economic stimulus measures would still be needed. However, proposals for a global levy on banks have been dropped, Mr Harper said. Instead, that will be left to individual countries.
Have the G8 and G20 meetings made a difference? What should have been their main priorities? Has the worldwide economic crisis affected the provision of international aid? Are you in the region?
