Group of 20 financial leaders met in Gyeongju, South Korea on Friday, seeking an agreement on a common path to manage currency, trade and macroeconomic imbalances. This meeting was to prepare the agendas for the leadership meeting in Seoul next month.

G20財政部長會議星期五在南韓慶州登場,尋求能夠在貨幣管理上、貿易與宏觀經濟的失衡狀況找到一條共同的路徑。這項會議是為在下個月首爾所舉辦的領袖會議準備議程。

The United States wanted the emerging markets to commit to cutting their current account surpluses and allowing their currencies to rise.

美國希望新興市場致力於削減目前的會計順差,並允許貨幣升值。

A G20 source said there was stiff opposition to the U.S. proposals.

一項來自G20的消息指出,對美國的提議有強硬的反對意見。

Meanwhile, more than 100 protesters gathered at a train station in Gyeongju where the meeting is taking place.

同時,超過100名抗議群眾聚集在會議舉辦地慶州火車站。

The protesters denounced the meeting as merely a show that would not produce any tangible outcomes. They say the G20's methods of solving the global financial problems are detrimental to the poor.

抗議群眾譴責該會議僅僅是一場秀,並不會有實際的結果產出。他們說G20所提出解決全球財政問題的方法,對貧困者是有害的。

[Jung Hee-sung, Protest Leader]:

"The solutions to the financial crisis being discussed in the G20 meeting, are unilaterally and forcibly pushing all the responsibilities onto people like us. Therefore, we're strongly against the meeting."

抗議群眾的領袖Jung Hee-sung說:“ 在G20金融危機所討論的解決方法是單方面的,並且他們只是強迫把所有責任推向我們民眾。因此我們強烈反對這場會議。“

Investors are keeping an eye on the result of the G20 finance minister meeting, with few expectations of a universal deal on global imbalances and currencies.

投資者關注這場G20財政首長會議的結果,但對在全球失衡與貨幣政策上達成普遍協議,只有很少的期待。
