BEIJING, September 2. /TASS/. The Group of Twenty (G20) is the most important mechanism for solving global economic problems, Nursultan Nazarbayev, President of Kazakhstan said in an interview with Chinese media, published by Xinhua News Agency on Friday.
"Currently, the G20 is viewed as the most important mechanism for solving global economic problems, coordinating macroeconomic policies of its member states, and reforming the global financial architecture," he stated.
According to Nazarbayev, the G20 will once again demonstrate its ability to ensure the stability of the global economy. "As the country chairing the summit, China is chiefly banking on innovation, a new industrial revolution and the digital economy. Kazakhstan fully supports this choice", he added.
