Reviving Economic Growth: Action Plan for Pittsburgh G20 Summit

Pre-G20 Conference Hosted by the Atlantic Council and Carnegie Mellon

PITTSBURGH—In advance of the Pittsburgh Summit for the G20, the Atlantic Council and Carnegie Mellon University, with the support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, will host an expert conference examining the steps needed to revitalize economic growth and restore confidence in globalization following the current crisis. Through a series of candid discussions and lectures, senior government officials, business leaders and key policy analysts will look at the mix of political, social, global and local forces needed to renew the world economy.

A report prepared by the conference participants, "Renewing Globalization and Economic Growth in a Post-Crisis World," will be available at the conference and by mid-September from Carnegie Mellon University Press.
