The Business 20 (B20) is a forum of global business leaders providing policy recommendations to the Group of 20 (G20) countries, an economic forum of countries that represent approximately 80% of global GDP. Since 2013, BCG has collaborated with the forum as a knowledge partner on select task forces under the guidance of Chairman Hans-Paul Bürkner.
The goal of the B20's work is to improve policy making, drive strong and sustainable economic growth, and establish appropriate economic governance. Each year, membership in the B20 ranges from 500 to 1,000 of the most influential business leaders. The summit is organized by topic task forces that are determined by the host country to reflect priorities in global business and economic governance.
BCG has tapped our people and our insights to help identify the policy changes that can improve economic, social, and environmental outcomes on key issues such as trade, investment, infrastructure, human capital, and financing for growth.
