ANTALYA nike air vapormax hombre , Turkey, Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- The leaders of the G20 members meet here on Sunday to discuss ways to better fulfill the group's mandate of promoting strong, balanced and sustainable growth.

Seven years after the global financial meltdown, there is still little sign that the world economy is on the right track back to strong recovery. Growth is not picking up, trade is weak, and investment is slowing down. Some experts cautioned that a recession is imminent.

Earlier, the Paris-based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) nike air vapormax grises baratas , trimmed in its twice-yearly outlook the forecast for global economic growth to 2.9 percent this year and 3.3 percent in 2016, down from the previous predictions of 3.0 percent and 3.6 percent, respectively. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has also made similar pessimist projections recently.

In last year's summit in Australia's Brisbane, the G20 set itself an ambitious goal to lift their gross domestic product by at least an additional two percent by 2018, agreeing on measures to lift investment, trade and competition, and employment.

However nike air vapormax grises , Tristram Sainsbury, research fellow with G20 studies center at Lowy Institute for International Policy, said the G20 growth strategy is not adding to growth, and that the G20 members need to do more to coordinate their pro-growth policy.

Taking over the baton, Turkey, the host of the summit, has highlighted the "three Is" nike air vapormax negras baratas , inclusiveness, implementation and investment, on G20's agenda to revitalize a sluggish global economy.

Global economic governance also needs the determination and political will to carry out necessary reforms, such as the 2010 IMF quota reforms, and to finalize the long-stalled Doha round of trade talks as soon as possible.

As the two-day summit convenes, the G20 leaders are expected to discuss these key economic topics, including inclusive growth nike air vapormax negras , employment and investment, as well as financial regulation.

On the eve of the summit, a wave of terrorist attacks rocked the French capital of Paris, killing 129 people and injuring many more. The Islamic State (IS) militant group has claimed responsibility. The G20 is expected to put out a statement on fighting terrorism later Sunday.

The IS has also said that it was behind the Oct. 31 crash of a Russian airliner over Egypt's Sinai and suicide bombings in Lebanon last Thursday.

In Antalya, Turkey has beefed up security for the summit, and deployed at least 12,000 security personnel.

Turkey has come under a spate of terror attacks lately since it launched in late July simultaneous attacks on targets of IS inside Syria and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in the country's southeast and northern Iraq.

A total of 102 people were killed on Oct. 10 when twin suicide bombings hit a peace rally in Ankara nike air vapormax azul baratas , Turkey's capital, marking the deadliest attack in the country's modern history.

Refugee crisis is also going to be included in the summit's agenda. A four-year-old war in Syria has spilled over, forcing millions of people to flee to Turkey, Lebanon and other countries.

SYDNEY, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Australian dollar was slightlyhigher against the greenback on Monday, with "little change" on theU.S. dollar index.

At the Asian market open 07:00 (AEST), the local unit wastrading at 79.54 US cents nike air vapormax azul , up from 79.46 U.S. cents on Friday.

Westpac Bank's senior market strategist Imre Speizer said in amorning note to investors that he expects the Aussie dollar toremain "neutral in a 0.7900-0.8000 range, but possibly weighed downMonday by any negative EUR reaction to the German election".

At 09:30 (AEST), the Australian dollar was buying 79.60 U.S.cents. Enditem

Australia's "accidental Kiwi" deputy prime minister renounced his New Zealand citizenship Tuesday amid sheep jokes, Hollywood taunts and conspiracy theories about a left-wing plot to topple Canberra's conservative government.

Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce revealed his New Zealand connection on Monday, sparking calls for him to stand down as it is illegal for dual citizens to sit in the Australian parliament.

By Tuesday afternoon, Joyce told parliament that authorities in Wellington had agreed he could renounce the New Zealand citizenship unknowingly acquired from his Dunedin-born father.

"We received verbal communication from New Zealand before question time that has now been accepted and we're looking forward to the written advice turning up pronto," he said.

The development does not mean the end of the bizarre affair , which threatens Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's one-seat majority in parliament. But Joyce will hope it bolsters the case to remain in his job, preserving the government's wafer-thin buffer, until the High Court determines if he is eligible to be an elected official.

The 50-year-old is best known internationally for threatening to euthanise Johnny Depp's dogs Pistol and Boo when they were brought into the country illegally.

Depp's ex-wife Amber Heard, who kept the dogs after they split, was revelling in his discomfort, tweeting Tuesday "when Barnaby Joyce said 'no one is above the law,' I didn't realize he meant New Zealand law.'" "To comfort Mr. Joyce in his hour [of] need nike air vapormax flyknit baratas , I have sent him a box of New Zealand's finest kiwi fruit (assuming this passes his biosecurity laws)," she added.

Joyce, who Depp once said "looks somehow inbred with a tomato," has long cultivated an image as a straight-talking Aussie bushman, usually sporting a wide-brimmed Akubra hat and elastic-sided farm boots.

The deputy Australian leader was "shellshocked" to learn last week of automatically qualifying as a New Zealander.

New Zealand officials said queries from Australian journalists prompted last week's discovery about Joyce's status.

However, Turnbull said it was "outrageous and improper" .
