The United States and Japan escaped specific mention in a final communique issued by the Group of 20 economies that called for credible medium-term fiscal strategies in advanced economies. The statement, issued after a two-day meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers, said the G20 was determined to "accelerate", instead of "continue", progress towards rebalancing global demand.
