U.S.-Led Group Mulls Asia Infrastructure Effort Amid China Push

Senior officials from the four Group of 20 nations have discussed “a range of opportunities and challenges,” Bishop told Sky News in an interview that aired Monday ahead of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s White House visit later this week.
