Finance ministers and central bankers from the G7 nations - the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Britain, Italy and Canada - would join the meeting in Koenigswinter, near Bonn.
The president of the European Central Bank and officials from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) were also expected, the paper said.
