Ahead of the G20 summit, the host city Buenos Aires had many G20 elements on display on November 28. At the Costa Salguero Exhibition Center, the main venue where leaders would meet, workers could be seen bustling about to put final touches to venue.

The Sino-US.com reporter arrived in Buenos Aires on November 28 to find out that the city is fully prepared to greet world leaders and visitors for the opening ceremony on November 30. G20 symbols could be seen on airport billboards and inquiry offices on the ground. Scrolls for the meeting are hanged on telegraph poles along the main streets of the city.

Sheraton, G20’s official reception hotel, is now closely patrolled by police, who were deployed there to ensure safety of the delegates.

In the afternoon, traffic jams started in the sections of streets neighboring Sheraton. A taxi driver told the reporter that traffic congestion has become worse since traffic controls related to G20 began to be implemented. Shop owners in the neighborhood told the reporter they were asked to stop doing business for a few days in order for the event not to be interrupted. Most local people don’t speak English although they’re familiar with the phrase “G20”.

The preparation work at the Costa Salguero Exhibition Center is still continuing with two days left for the event. The venue is one of the major exhibitions and activity centers in the city where many international events had been hosted before. The reporter could see spider-men washing windows and porters wheeling pot plants into the building.
