|November 3rd and 4th will see a different type of VIP to Cannes' glittering shores than that of the usual Hollywood import. The 2011 G20 Summit meeting is set to be hosted by the glamorous town of Cannes, a setting that is well used to important visitors thanks to its annual Cannes Film Festival. Bernard Brochard, Mayor of Cannes, claims that it is for this very reason that Cannes had been selected. The town's experience with high profile events should mean that the security systems and luxury accommodations required are already in place and well tested.|
The G20 is a meeting of heads of state to get together to discuss world financial issues. This year, perhaps more than any other is going to be a matter of some tense discussion and some hard scrutiny as we continue to face world financial instability. The G20 is always an event that attracts protesters, usually taking a stand against globalisation, but Brochard is confident that the streamlined security surrounding Cannes' events will be sufficient to see that the meeting runs smoothly.
World leaders attending the event will include France's own Mr. Nicolas Sarkozy, Mr. Barack Obama, Mr. Hu Jinto President of China, Mr. David Cameron from the United Kingdom and heads of state from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, European Union, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Turkey.
Cannes will, once again, be full as it welcomes the world's press as well as our esteemed leaders.
