British Prime Minister Gordon Brown says the international financial crisis has given world leaders a unique opportunity to create a truly global society.
Brown says Britain, the U.S., and Europe are key to leading the way to a new world order, Reuters reports.
"My message is that we must be internationalist not protectionist, interventionist not neutral, progressive not reactive and forward-looking not frozen by events. We can seize the moment and in doing so build a truly global society," the British Prime-Minister said.
He says 2008 can be remembered not just for the financial crisis, but for the way global leaders changed the world.
"Uniquely in this global age, it is now in our power to come together so that 2008 is remembered not just for the failure of a financial crash that engulfed the world but for the resilience and optimism with which we faced the storm, endured it and prevailed," Brown said.
Brown will be one of the international leaders meeting in Washington next weekend to talk about solutions for the economy.
