On May 3rd, 2017, the B20 has officially handed over its Policy Recommendations to German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.

The recommendations are the product of a yearlong process of our seven Taskforces and Cross-thematic Groups, which comprise over 700 members from all G20 economies. 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.

Germany assumed the G20 Presidency at a time of growing uncertainty around the world. The business community stands ready to take responsibility and do its part. We would like to thank all our members and partners for their continuous engagement, without which this process would not have been possible.
