Not 30 countries…

G30 says broken financial system needs fixing

NEW YORK, Jan 15 (Reuters) – The Group of 30 countries on Thursday called for changes in international financial regulation to help avoid future meltdowns, but its recommendations were vague and non-binding.

Your story incorrectly states that the G30 is a “Group of 30 countries.” It is not. The Group of Thirty is a group of individuals from the private and public sectors and academia from a variety of countries, but not thirty countries.

Please correct it.
