>Pittsburgh to host the Next G-20 SummitPosted: May 29, 2009
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, “White House officials expect delegations from 25 nations to attend… The U.S. delegation will have about 250 people, the United Kingdom’s delegation will have about 150 and the remaining groups each will have roughly 50, he said. About 2,000 members of the media are expected.”
While city officials are beginning to sort out the logistics and security necessary for a meeting of this caliber, the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh is also planning. The Council will likely host at least one “Summit Preview” program for adults in the community, and one “large-scale” school program about the G-20 in mid-September. Stay tuned for details!!
