Q1: promise a rare moment in the sun=?
Next week's Toyako summit of the Group of Eight leading industrial nations promises a rare moment in the sun. Prime ministers and presidents will pronounce on everything from oil prices and global warming to nuclear proliferation and the fight against malaria. As many as 14 leaders from emerging powers will make cameo appearances. Lunch with the Chinese, coffee with the Senegalese?
Q2: What is 'emerging powers'?
Re: promise a rare moment in the sun=?
It's a time of positive attention instead of criticism. The emerging powers are countries like India and Brazil that are progressing rapidly and playing an increasingly important role.
