Leaders of the world’s largest economies gathered in Bali, Indonesia, for the G-20 summit this week. Challenges to address included Russia’s war in Ukraine, unprecedented risks to international energy and food supply chains, and a global economy edging closer to recession. All of this was discussed as a missile fell on Polish territory, sparking questions about its origins and whether the war in Ukraine had just entered a new phase.

What were the main summit takeaways from the summit? FP editor in chief Ravi Agrawal spoke with FP columnists Matthew Kroenig and Edward Alden, and Lynn Kuok, a senior fellow for Asia-Pacific security at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.
