As leaders of the world's biggest economies are gathering in China's Hangzhou for G20 summit, world media show a growing interest in what the summit may achieve.
 
Let's hear what they say.

"I am very interested in two issues. The first one is climate change. I think the climate change is really going to be a key issue at the summit.Reports have said that China and the US are likely to be signing the Paris Agreement on climate change. The US and China represent about 40% of carbon emissions, so that will be a very important step to fight against climate change. I think that development will also be an important issue at the summit. For example, the G20 action plan on the 2030 sustainable development goals. That demonstrate that development will be taking very serious at the summit, also the fact that China has invited the most developing countries to the summit, it's evidence that China is really looking into push development as a key topic agenda."

"One of the things that I am interested in is the implementation of the promises that the G20 leaders make."

"I come from Nepal, so I'm more concerned about what are the policies the G20 countries will take, especially regarding the least developed countries. And a lot of issues regarding the environment. And also the global economic scenario, and how these countries are planning to pick these global economic issues. That would be my major concerns at this G20 Summit."

"I'm from Africa, Malawi. So my interet is in how G20 countries will talk all the issues of global inclusion in the economic development, especially looking at the interests of the developing countries."
 
SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH): MWAZIPEZA CHANDA, China Africa Press Center
"This is the first time that the G20 Summit has invited so many Africa leaders, and I think that's very encouraging for us. So I am very interested in sustainable devlopment. Because we have the sustainable development goals at G20 last year, and being implemented now. This is a very good opportunity for Africa, because we have the world leaders able to dissucss the issues that affect us as well. And especially when it comes to climate change and the cooperation between major economies and small economies. So very exciting time!"
