B20 Germany 2017

Resilience, Responsibility, Responsiveness – Towards a
Future-oriented, Sustainable World Economy


The Business 20 (B20) is the official G20 dialogue with the global business community. Developed under the theme “Building Resilience – Improving Sustainability – Assuming Responsibility”, the B20 Policy Recommendations span the entire scope of the G20 process: from the need to maintain an open, rule-based trading system, to facilitating sustainable finance and increased efforts to widen the inclusiveness and resilience of the labor market in the face of technological change. The B20 recommendations are not limited to how to generate economic growth. The overall aim of the B20 is to lead the global economy towards a sustainable and future-oriented path. The B20 strives to deliver concrete, actionable recommendations to the G20. In doing so it enables political decision-making based on actual needs and real world solutions. Read the B20 Policy Recommendations to the G20 here.
