On November 2, the City of Rosario hosted the formal start of the Business 20 Argentina (B20) activities.
Established as the voice of the private sector within the framework of the Group of Twenty (G20), whose presidency our country will assume next December, the B20 Argentina summoned representatives of business chambers and the private sector to participate in the event “Business Leaders Forum: On the way to G20 Argentina”, organized jointly with the Rosario Stock Exchange and the Industrial Federation of Santa Fe. The ceremony was attended by several authorities from the main business chambers of the country, representatives of the German process, and national authorities such as the Minister of Production, Francisco Cabrera, the Argentine Sherpa of the G20, Ambassador Pedro Villagra Delgado, and the Governor of the Province of Santa Fe, Miguel Lifschitz. Later this year, Ambassador Villagra Delgado himself, on behalf of the National Government, appointed Dr. Daniel Funes de Rioja as leader (Chair) of the B20 and the presidents of the group of business chambers (ADEBA, BCBA, CACS, CAMARCO, SRA and UIA) as Co-Chair. Likewise, the B20 Sherpas, Carolina Castro and Fernando Landa, have joined this challenge. The Forum addressed the unprecedented opportunity that our country has to preside over this process and the challenge that this entails for national entrepreneurs to lead the discussion and achieve consensuses on policy recommendations, while accomplishing greater positioning and active participation in the international system.
