I have been selected as a member of the B20 Germany 2017 and appointed to the Trade & Investment Taskforce and the Responsible Business Conduct & Anti-Corruption Cross-Thematic Working Group.
The B20 leads engagement with G20 governments on behalf of the international business community. The B20 promotes dialogue among policymakers, civil society, and business at the international level. The mission of the B20 is to support the G20 through consolidated representation of interests, concrete policy proposals, and expertise. In the B20, business representatives from the entire G20 develop joint recommendations and advocate specific policy actions across the entire G20 agenda.
The G20 is the premier forum for international economic cooperation and increasingly the central forum for all questions of global governance. The G20 was initiated in 1999 and consists of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Republic of Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union (EU).
The B20 Germany meets in Berlin in December 2016 and May 2017, culminating in the G20 Summit in Hamburg in July 2017.
