Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Monday described the Group of 20 (G20) summit in the Chinese city of Hangzhou as "impressive and huge."
"This is my first summit and I received a very gracious welcome, I felt very comfortable," Macri told the Argentinean Mitre radio station. "The organization is impressive. What they have done is huge."
He added that the G20 bloc had provided "an absolute opening for Argentina."
"In 2018, we will have the honor of hosting the G20 ... it is lucky we are not following China," he joked.
According to Macri, China, Argentina and Germany (the 2017 host) have held meetings to discuss themes for the G20's present and future agendas.
The G20 summit was held on Sept. 4-5 in Hangzhou, a city known for its beautiful West Lake and one of the most favored destinations in China by foreign visitors.
In his writings about China, Marco Polo called Hangzhou "paradise on Earth."
