During his opening remarks, Ahmet Davutoglu, prime minister of Turkey, Davutoglu stated that insecurity has been a big threat to growth of the world economy but some developed nations are insensitive to the development. According to him, there are six countries that do not have authority over their territories. “The world should address youth unemployment and poverty, which are responsible for ideological confrontation across the world today. We have to be inclusive in our approach because no nation is immune to crisis. We should learn how to implement our decisions and enough of paper decisions,” he said.
The prime minister added that the G20 leaders failed to achieve it 2 per cent growth of the world economy in 2015 because world leaders refused to implement policies that will address challenges of low income developing economies. “Trade has reduced across the world because the needs of the emerging markets are not met and that increased migration rate among them. Turkey has decided to address this challenge by engaging emerging economies and small and medium enterprises, SMEs, across the world in the G20 summit in November. We will listen to them and proffer solutions to their challenges,” he added.
