Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India and Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende of the Netherlands have also arrived to take part in the Group of 20 Summit. The official agenda of the Summit has shifted more towards economic and political affairs, and away from aid and development issues which have dominated past summits.
