G20 Leaders’ Sessions: Parallel
Session I: Growth and Investment
Venue: Titanic Hotel, Atlantic Hall 1
The recovery of economic growth globally remains weak. Consistent and coherent financial regulation remains critical to assure the resilience needed to support the recovery. Participants will debate how further implementation of structural reforms can help build the next wave of economic growth. Participants will also discuss B20’s proposed policies to foster better-quality public and private investment, particularly in infrastructure, as well as for SME financing. Energy and the climate change issues will also be included in the discussions.
Session II: Trade, Jobs and Competitiveness
Venue: Titanic Hotel, Atlantic Hall 2
Increased competition opens up new business opportunities, reduces the cost of goods and services, improves economic performance, and creates new jobs. Participants will debate how to remove barriers to trade, and build a more efficient global trading system, including digital trade. Participants will also discuss recommendations B20 has put forward for G20 leaders’ consideration to enhance competition in order to reduce opportunities for corruption, and create a more favorable business environment for entrepreneurs and SMEs to grow.
