Mid-November: International Summits Congestion

In the week we publish GEAB there are some very big events that we have to bring to your attention:

12-16 November: ASEAN summit / Vietnam. The debates focus on the immense risks that US-Chinese tensions pose to the region.

13 November: G20 / Saudi Arabia.  The indebted countries of the G20 agree to lift the debt of poor countries. Are we moving towards a complete restructuring of the global debt?

15 November: Signing off of the RCEP free-trade megazone. Without India, but the door is not closed; the region is now open to trade between 2.2 billion people and 1/3 of the world economy.[1]

17 November: BRICS summit / Russia. As always, everyone gives them up for dead but summits follow summits in spite of everything. Each time, they reaffirm the relevance of their project to build a multi-polar AND peaceful world.
