  • Diverse Participation: Bloomberg characterizes the summit as having "an extremely diverse group of participants," highlighting the involvement of representatives from the "Global South."

Objectives and Challenges:

  • Meloni's Aim: The Italian Prime Minister aims to invite as many states as possible to the discussion to increase the chances of signing favorable agreements.
  • Tensions to Navigate: Meloni will also need to manage tensions between some guests, particularly between the presidents of Brazil and Argentina.
