G20

Welcome to our G20 Blog Section, here you will find information and latest news on the G20.

The G20 is an informal group of 19 countries and the European Union, with representatives of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The finance ministers and central bank governors began meeting in 1999, at the suggestion of the G7 finance ministers in response to the global financial crisis of 1997-99.

The Group of Twenty (G20) is an international forum that brings together the world’s 20 leading industrialised and emerging economies. The group accounts for 85 per cent of world GDP and two-thirds of its population.

Much of the important business takes place on the sidelines and in informal meetings.

Membership of the G20 consists of 19 individual countries plus the European Union (EU). The EU is represented by the European Commission and by the European Central Bank. Collectively, the G20 economies account for around 85% of the gross world product (GWP), 80% of world trade (or, if excluding EU intra-trade, 75%), two-thirds of the world population,and approximately half of the world land area.

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin plan a summit: Our president remains suspiciously eager to please

Donald Trump finally got his summit with Vladimir Putin. He’s been pushing for it for months, seeming nearly desperate in recent weeks to get private face time with the Russian president.

We don’t know exactly what’s happening with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office because his staff doesn’t…
