The G20 Hangzhou Summit which closed on September 5 is being praised by African journalists for having a heart for Africa and focusing attention on smaller economies.

In an exclusive interview with People’s Daily Online, Fredrick P.W. Gaye, news editor of the In Profile Daily Newspaper in Liberia, said that the G20 Hangzhou Summit is a history-making summit as it invited more developing countries and put more emphasis on Africa.

“African voices were heard and now more Africans know what the G20 is. I feel that China is trying to make G20 a household name across the world, rather than something for a few countries, because China has the vision,” Gaye said.

Ikenna Emewu, senior editor at The Sun Newspaper in Nigeria, commended the G20 in China for its emphasis on the need to integrate smaller economies to assist their growth. READ MORE OF THIS STORY
