Working together with other member countries, South Africa's participation in the G20 would seek to ensure that the work of the forum retains a central focus on sustainable development.

The development focus should enable the forum to take the undertakings of previous Summits forward, he added.

"The G20 should play an active role in addressing critical development issues. This G20 summit should take us forward in narrowing the development gap to achieve strong, sustainable and balanced growth and to ensure a more robust and resilient global economy for all."

Zuma said South Africa was honored to have been invited to join South Korea as Co-chair of the Development Working Group of the G20, adding that the group had identified a set of key interventions that will help to improve the economic growth of developing countries in the long run.

These interventions, he said, will be submitted to the Summit for consideration.

"The G20 should play an active role in addressing critical development issues. This G20 summit should take us forward in narrowing the development gap to achieve strong, sustainable and balanced growth and to ensure a more robust and resilient global economy for all," said Zuma. – BuaNews
