After the financial and economic crisis of 2008-2009. There was no such unity at the G-20 level No such friendship and conciliation message has been heard in the announcement of any summit since that crisis. The leaders of this group want to take every step to remove the obstacles that are arising in the course of world trade during the current crisis. However, in the present situation, many countries have not called for an end to the problems that have caused the export of drugs and medical equipment. They have vowed to eliminate ‘unnecessary interference’ only through mutual coordination. They also spoke of special arrangements, especially for vulnerable groups like the African continent and refugees. World leaders have called for special measures for the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
Some G20 leaders joined from their homes, some from their offices.. but they all turned video on :), lets hope we can all work together to get through this. #ciscowebex #workfromhome https://t.co/azgTqsZ6Q4

At the conference, European leaders mentioned the difficult situation in their country. The serious situation in Italy and Spain, in particular, is causing anxiety. But on the same day. The telephone conference of the top leaders of the European Union did not produce any results. They could not make any decision on increasing government spending, especially in dealing with the economic situation. They raised the issue in the hands of the euro area finance ministers.
