BCG Partners with B20

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 Global Chairman Emeritus 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.

Organized under the theme of “Advancing Innovative, Inclusive and Collaborative Growth”, B20 Indonesia operates through six task forces and one action council. It seeks to gather inputs from G20 business communities to address global issues with connected, collaborative efforts targeting all aspects of the global economy.

As a leading knowledge partner, BCG is supporting three B20 task forces designed to facilitate cooperation and contribution to the formulation of policy recommendations for trade and investment, digitization, and energy, sustainability, and climate. Hans-Paul Bürkner is a co-chair of the digitization task force and a member of the B20 International Advocacy Caucus (IAC).
