RIYADH, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- The Group of 20 (G20) Saudi Arabia's Presidency said on Sunday the G20 Riyadh Summit reaffirmed the spirit of cooperation, which has always been the cornerstone of the G20 successes.

"We have adopted important policies that will achieve recovery all the way to an economy that is resilient, sustainable, inclusive, and balanced," he said, adding that these policies will also maintain the momentum to make the global trade system work for all and create the conditions to achieve sustainable growth.
