More happily, its agenda is also aimed at boosting such crucial projects for the improvement of living standards as expanding global infrastructure initiatives (e.g., in transportation, energy, public-health, etc.), establishing stronger incentives for sustainable development, improving energy security and reinforcing efforts to counter-act climate change.

The leaders, with their economic/financial advisers, will address these things while discussing what they can do collectively to prevent the world economic slowdown from becoming a  serious recession.

Japan, the summit host,  has led by example: It has long been at the forefront  globally in (quietly) helping to finance a wide range of infrastructure investments, in both the developed and developing worlds.
