Pittsburgh will host the world's major economic powers at a G20 Summit in September.

The White House made the announcement at a press briefing in Washington, D.C. this afternoon. The summit will be held on Sept. 24 and 25.

Presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs said the U.S. agreed to host the next summit during the London meeting earlier in the spring. Pittsburgh is "a good place" to hold the summit because of its recovery from the decline of the steel industry in the 1980s, he said.

At the Pittsburgh Summit, President Barack Obama will meet with leaders representing 85 percent of the world's economy to take stock of progress made since the most recent summits and discuss further actions to assure a sound and sustainable recovery from the global economic and financial crisis, officials said.

As a Pittsburgher I had 2 reactions hearing this.

YES! What an honor President Obama.

2nd reaction - President Obama why do you hate Pittsburgh? (just thinking of the protestors who do property damage)

I hope all goes well for my city and both protestors & police behave!

The local RW talk radio KDKA are already naysaying this big time.
