Description
For two days from November 11 to 12, the G20 Summit will be held in Seoul, Korea.

Created in 1999 to forge a new international order, the G20 Summit is a forum of 20 leaders from the greatest economic powers among the 192 UN members. It comprises 20 countries: the existing G7 (USA, UK, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Canada) and 12 emerging countries (Korea, China, India, Indonesia, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Turkey, Australia, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia) and the EU. Since first held in Washington in 2008, the G20 Summit Meeting has been held in London, UK in April 2009, Pittsburg, the U.S. in September 2009, and Toronto, Canada in June 2010. Following these, the 5th meeting will be held in November 2010 in Korea.

The Seoul Meeting, for which 20 world leaders and 10,000 people will visit Korea, will formulate more concrete implementation approaches to facilitate such existing agenda as "cooperation in macroeconomic policies," "reforming financial regulations," "reshuffling international financial organizations," as well as other topical issues. Korea, as both the chairing and hosting nation, will structure and present an agenda that can provide valuable assistance to emerging and developing countries in such form as "development issues," "global financial safety networks," etc. Hoping that this Seoul meeting will serve as an efficient forum that will foster the sustainable growth of the world economy and that the success of this meeting will help Korea join the leadership group of the world economy, two commemorative stamps featuring "Gwanghwamun (Gate)" and the "logo of the G20 Seoul Summit" are being issued. These stamps express two concepts: Korea welcomes the people from all over the world by opening up the great gate of Gwanghwamun; our wish that this Seoul Meeting, just like Cheongsachorong, the traditional Korean lantern adorned with red and blue silk will light the way for the world economy to a brighter future.
