Today's G20 deal will solve financial crisis, claims Gordon Brown | World news | guardian.co.uk

Gordon Brown today claimed that the end of the global recession was now achievable as he unveiled an agreement from the G20 summit that will pump an additional $1tn (£748bn) into the world economy.

Announcing the conclusions of the London summit, the prime minister also unveiled a surprise move on tax havens, saying that a list of countries that do not comply with anti-secrecy rules would be published today.

"This is the day that the world came together to fight back against the global recession, not with words but with a plan for global recovery and reform and with a clear timetable," Brown told a news conference at the ExCel centre in London's Docklands, after several days of frantic diplomacy and political posturing. 

"Today's decisions, of course, will not immediately solve the crisis. But we have begun the process by which it will be solved," Brown added.
