About B20: The Business 20 (B20) provides a significant platform for the international business community to participate in global economic governance and international economic and trade regulation. Centered on B20 taskforce meetings and the B20 summit, it supports the work of the G20 by hosting focused policy discussions and developing recommendations geared towards strong, sustainable and balanced growth in the global economy.
Over the years B20 priorities have been clearly aligned with those of the G20 Summit, focusing on major goals in global economic development. These include financial system reform, trade, investment, infrastructure, employment and anti-corruption policy. The B20 taskforces consult with the business community and devise a list of recommendations for G20 members. Since 2010 more than 400 policy recommendations have been proposed. These continue to be highly valued by G20 leaders and many have been incorporated into previous G20 communiqués. Many G20 leaders have attended previous B20 summits and exchanged views with B20 delegates.
