    About G20

    The Group of Twenty (G20) is the premier forum for its members’ international economic cooperation and decision-making. Its membership comprises 19 countries plus the European Union. Each G20 president invites several guest countries each year.

    G20 leaders meet annually. In addition, Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meet regularly during the year to discuss ways to strengthen the global economy, reform international financial institutions, improve financial regulation and implement the key economic reforms that are needed in each member economy. Underpinning these meetings is a year-long program of meetings among senior officials and of working groups coordinating policy on specific issues.

    Brisbane, Fast, First: Marine One chopper hovers above Brisbane for G20

    •United States military have begun practice runs in Brisbane for the arrival of President Barack Obama.

    •Three helicopters, bearing the green and white livery of US President’s Marine One, this afternoon undertook practise take offs and landings at Victoria Park Gold Club in Herston.

    •They are traditionally operated by the Marine Helicopter Squadron One and are usually either VH-3D Sea Kings or VH-60N WhiteHawks.

    •The trio were joined by what appeared to be two Bell Boeing V-22 Ospreys.

    •The strange looking helicopters with duel tilt rotators are used by the American military and are capable of vertical take-offs and landings.

    G’Day G20: A guide to Queensland for world leaders :D:


    WORLD leaders and their entourages may find BrisVegas, our lingo and our customs, a little strange.

    Mention Fourex, lamingtons or thongs, and the chances are they won’t know what you’re talking about.

    So we have compiled a guide to Australia’s new world city and the Sunshine State to help our esteemed visitors.
