Treasurer WAYNE SWAN says he's seen no evidence of a split between G20 nations over the need for further stimulus packages to boost the world economy at this weekend's meeting.

But he says there's more of a resolve to work together to free up credit flow .. reform international financial institutions .. and overhaul regulation of the finance system .. now people realise the seriousness of the crisis.

Mr SWAN's been meeting with fellow ministers from the world's top 20 nations with the strongest economies .. ahead of next month's key summit of G20 leaders in London.

He says there's no figure yet on what Australia's contribution to a global rescue plan might be.
