One hundred business movers and shakers from around the world will come together in Seoul later this year when heads of the 20 major economies meet for a global economic summit, organizers of the business meeting here reportedly said Thursday.

The committee planning the meeting said that CEOs from 100 global companies are expected to attend the two-day Seoul G-20 Business Summit starting Nov. 10, just a day before the G-20 summit is convened, according to local news reports.

There will be 80 business leaders from G-20 member countries and the rest 20 will be from non-member nations, and they will discuss trade and investment, finance, green growth and social responsibilities of corporations, according to reports.

Attendees reportedly include Josef Ackermann, CEO of Deutsche Bank; Stephen Green, group chairman of British bank HSBC Holdings Plc.; and SK Group Chairman Choi Tae-won of South Korea.
