"Mastering the challenges of our age and shaping an interconnected world is the common goal of the G-20 as our premier forum for international economic cooperation. We can achieve more together than by acting alone," an official statement read. The leaders pledged to progress towards their joint objective in the G20, which is strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth.
