This isn't a sentence. You have a possible subject, 'leader', there is no verb, so nothing is happening. The rest of the sentence is a string of related, but unconnected, phrases.

Try making a very simple sentence or two to explain what you are trying to say and post that.

 

The group leader in financial markets and the world economic summit meeting of the international financial crisis to deal with.

I answered this question last night... I am not sure why you posted it again...

 

b) The group leader in financial markets and the world economic summit meeting of the international financial crisis to deal with.

 

The reason this sentence makes no sense is because the sentence has no verb in the predicate.

"to deal" has deal, but it is part of an infinitive and, consequently, it is no longer acting like a verb.

 

Verbs are the foundation of our language--they are required for every sentence that isn't a simple interjection.

 

"The group leader" = Noun (possible subject)

"in financial markets" = Prepositional Phrase

"and" = conjunction

"the world economic summit meeting" = Noun (Possible new Subject or Direct Object of original subject)

"of the international financial crisis" = Prepositional Phrase

"to deal with" = Infinitive Phrase

As you can see, you have no main verb.
