The Summit of leaders from 20 top economies of the world, being held at a time when the global economic growth is slowing down, is expected to be attended by US President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese President Xi Jinping, among others.

As world leaders congregate in this Turkish resort town, last night's ghastly terror attacks in Paris, ongoing war in nearby Syria, the migrant crisis in the region and the need for strengthening the crackdown against terrorism will take the centre stage.

French President Francois Hollande cancelled his visit for the G20 meeting in the wake of the attack. The host country has been pressing for a discussion at the 10th G20 Summit on the conflicts in Syria and the worst migrant crisis since World War II.

Some world leaders including PM Modi are also likely to voice concern over delay in implementation of the quota reform of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), aimed at giving more voice and voting power to the emerging economies as well as providing a pitch for cutting transaction cost for transferring money from abroad.
