Susan Harris Rimmer on how Australia can shape the G20 agenda
“Australia has made an impact on the G20 recently, showing that our leadership is welcomed … It could do more with the right support.”
THE PROBLEM: The Group of Twenty (G20) is an association of twenty advanced economies whose purpose is to promote “strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth”. It has been meeting at the ministerial level since 1999 and the leader level since 2008. Australia is a member, along with other major economies such as China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union.
