The international policy and financial community is in ferment for the upcoming G-20 summit, scheduled to kick-off in St Petersburg, Russia, in two weeks from now. The “Group of Twenty” consists of political leaders, finance ministers and bank governors from 19 economically-prominent countries, along with representatives of European Union institutions.
The group has been meeting regularly every year since 2008 in private meetings where the participants discuss and agree on international financial regulations, since the global crisis of 2007.
G-20 Summits represent a major event within the global community and attract the interest and attention of organizations and individuals worldwide. Not surprisingly, this includes espionage groups.
