B20 and B7
The G20 was created to promote a coherent and harmonised response among major economies in times of crisis. Even if the economic and financial situation has improved in the meantime the idea to have a forum where major world players can discuss key strategic topics remains relevant.
Business has a critical role to play in this process as some of the issues or measures being discussed by political leaders have a significant impact on the life of companies. In many cases successful implementation depends on a strong and active engagement from the business community.
