About the B20

Business 20, or B20, is the private sector´s voice of the G20 community.

B20 has become the first engagement group of G20 to be formally recognized as such, in 2010, during the G20 Canada Presidency. Since then, B20 worked to provide practical perspectives and generate new ideas in a variety of themes that include: employment and education, trade and investment, financing growth and infrastructure and innovation, among others.

More than 1700 business leaders, from 740 companies and 260 employers organisations, have worked together during 2018 to draft eight documents of policy recommendations that if implemented could boost economic growth, generate jobs, and assure a more sustainable future for our societies.

The G20 is made up of 19 countries and the European Union (EU). The 19 countries are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.
