Fernando Landa, Policy Sherpa, was invited to speak about the role of the Business 20 (B20) during the Think 20 (T20) Inception Workshop event. The T20 is an engagement group that reunites think thanks and leading experts from around the world to provide valuable analysis to the G20 dialogue and produce ideas which contribute to the achievement of concrete and sustainable policies.
The presentation addressed the contributions of the engagement groups to the G20. In this regard, Fernando Landa introduced the B20 structure and its main objectives: generating more and better jobs, sustained growth and inclusive development. The B20 Policy Sherpa highlighted the importance of including the private sector’s voice in order to construct a fruitful policy discussion. He also stressed that the business communities actively seeks to extend the dialogue to further sector of society and economy such as the government, the civil society, think tanks and all of the engagement groups.
“As the G20 private sector’s voice, the B20 has a very strong commitment to build consensus for a fair and sustainable development.”
