The G-20 is the premier forum for discussing, planning and monitoring international economic cooperation.
Mexico believes the forum can better represent developing countries in both vision and policy. Under the leadership of President Felipe Calderon, Mexico will seek to expand the scope of the G-20's development focus.
Pre-planning for the G-20 summit in 2012 began in 2010. In January 2010, Mexican Deputy Foreign Minister Lourdes Aranda hosted a preliminary meeting in Mexico City. It was attended by "sherpas" (representatives) of the G20 foreign ministries.
The final draft of G20 Toronto summit communique became the public announcement that the 2011 summit in France would be followed by a 2012 summit in Mexico.
The prospective participants at the Mexico summit include leaders and representatives of the core members of the G-20 major economies, which comprises 19 countries and the European Union which is represented by its two governing bodies, the European Council and the European Commission. Representatives of other nations and regional organizations are expected to take part in the summit.
