Ban Ki-moon arrives St.Petersburg to attend the G20 summit

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon gets into a car as he arrives a day before the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg September 4, 2013.

The Group of 20 cut its teeth in the global financial crisis of 2009, achieving unprecedented cooperation between developed and emerging nations to stave off economic collapse which has not been matched since.

 Four years on, shifts of power and money – led by capital flight from emerging markets – and gaping divisions over Syria will test the resolve of the G20 leaders when they meet in Russia’s second city of St Petersburg this week.
