MEXICO, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - After Russia took over the G20 presidency from Mexico, “Russian representatives have done an outstanding work, which is aimed at this organization to preserve its topicality on the global level,” Mexican Minister of Finance and Public Credit Luis Videgaray said in an exclusive interview to Itar-Tass on the eve of a meeting of the finance ministers and the governors of the Central Banks of the G20 states that will open here on Friday.
“With due account of dynamically changing economic conditions in the world Russia included several own issues for debates within the G20 format,” the minister said. For instance, this is a long-term financing and investments, as well as the management of the state debt. “As the G20 presiding country Russia ensured the continuity of the agenda, which Mexico has formulated at this post in 2012,” Videgaray noted.
Russia “ensured a perfect use of the mechanism of the troika, in which Mexico is included as the previous G20 presiding country, Russia is included in it as the current G20 presiding country and Australia is a member of it as a future presiding country in this organization,” the minister believes. Representatives of these three countries have made an efficient exchange of experience and are keeping constantly in contact that “helped in the setting of the priorities and ensured their successful development in the agenda for 2013,” Videgaray underlined.
