Despite this, it's unclear what exactly Trump and Putin might discuss at the summit.

The German "Industry 4.0" concept, coined in 2011, is designed to facilitate automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies, including cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and cloud computing.

"There's no specific agenda", national security advisor H.R. McMaster said last Thursday. He called on Gulf leaders urging them to resolve the current ongoing dispute with Qatar in a diplomatic manner.

De Maiziere said during a visit to Hamburg that peaceful protests were welcome and permissible in a democracy but violent demonstrators could not invoke the right to the freedom of assembly and would be suppressed.

On Monday, presenting her party's election platform, Merkel predicted "a whole series of thorny issues" at the G20.

NAN reports that on June 20, German police unveiled a mass detention centre built in anticipation of protests against the summit.

"We want to create an image, because we believe in the power of images...we want to motivate people to take part".

It has been reported that Trump will be joining Macron in Paris for the Bastille Day celebration later this month.

"The summit will not be easy; but hopefully it will be a step to build new and broad and stable alliances to shape the era of the global commons towards sustainability and inclusiveness", Messner said.

Whatever happens with Trump and Putin, it's certainly not the only meeting at G20 where the U.S. president is expected to cause a ruckus. "Since the decision by the United States of America to leave the Paris climate accord, we are more determined than ever to lead it to success", she added.

"In an extensive discussion, the leaders addressed climate issues, the Women's Entrepreneurship Financing Initiative, and trade, including global steel overcapacity", it said. "Protestors will find a journey to Hamburg easy to make, unlike previous, more remote, venues".

Leaders of the 20 largest economies on earth meet periodically to talk about the problems facing a world where collectively, they set the tone, the tempo, and are forced to respond to the problems.

Is there any cause for concern?

Several people were arrested when German police cleared a campsite established to protest the upcoming G20 summit in Hamburg, police said.

Themed "Shaping an Interconnected World", the Hamburg summit will focus on such topics as economic, financial, trade, climate, and development policy.
