The ongoing debt crisis has seen the international ratings agency, Moody's, lower the credit rating of Italy, Spain, and Portugal. The agency also downgraded Slovakia, Slovenia and Malta.

Meanwhile, leaders from the European Union are in Beijing in the hope of persuading Chinese leaders invest billions of dollars into their bail-out fund.
