Article reports that José Manuel Barroso, the European Commission President, called on the 23 October 2008 for an 'unprecedented' exercise in global co-operation to deal with the current international financial crisis. He was speaking ahead of a two-day summit in Beijing of the 43-nation Asia-Europe Meeting, a dialogue that has yielded few results in the past but which had taken on considerable importance in 2008 because of the continuing crisis.
