NUSA DUA, Indonesia - Indonesia urged G20 finance leaders to stay focused on their goals for global economic recovery as the two-day meeting continued on Saturday.

"It is important that we remain focused on what we have planned to achieve this year, as this will also send a positive message to the global community on the G20's role and efforts to support global recovery," Indonesian central bank governor Perry Warjiyo said when he opened the second day of meetings.
