G20 leaders to meet in Pittsburgh

11:00 am on 29 May 2009

The United States will host the next G20 summit of world leaders in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in September.

The meeting will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 24 - 25 September.

A $US1.7 trillion rescue plan to help revive the world economy was announced at the last G20 summit in London in April.

The September meeting is expected to monitor the implementation of the plan so far and decide whether further measures are needed.
