Leaders' Summit, Brisbane, November 2014

US President Obama, remarks at G20 Press Conference, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane

Thank you, everybody.  Please have a seat.  Good afternoon.  I want to begin by thanking Prime Minister Abbott, the people of Brisbane, and the people of Australia for being such extraordinary hosts for the G20.  All the arrangements were terrific and, as always, the people of Australia could not have been friendlier and better organized.  So I very much appreciate everything that you have done.

Young Soweto women in Brisbane for the G20 Leaders’ Summit

Two 16-year-old women from Soweto in South Africa have made the long journey to Brisbane for the G20 Leaders’ Summit, where they had the opportunity to meet Australia’s Treasurer Joe Hockey and South Africa’s Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene.

Hlengiwe Moletsane and Ofentse Mahasha from Molestane High School both wrote prize-winning essays addressing the question: why is the G20 important for countries like South Africa and Australia?
