World leaders will gather Nov. 15 in Washington for a summit to discuss the global economic crisis.

A senior administration official said Wednesday that the forum will be the first in a series of international meetings to discuss what economists predict could be a long and deep downturn.

President Bush, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso issued a statement last weekend that said the first such summit would focus on progress being made to address the current crisis and reforms needed to avoid a repetition of the problems. The later summits will be designed to implement specific steps on the principles of reform.

The location of the summit has not been announced.
