Robert Milliner, a senior advisor for China B20 and the B20 Sherpa for Australia for 2014, is calling on G20 leaders to resist trade protectionism. He says the global economic recovery remains weak.

Milliner spoke to CCTV-News on the sidelines of a business advisory council for APEC business leaders in Shenzhen. He said free trade and economic integration remain major goals for APEC and the G20.
