Agriculture Deputies Meeting (ADM)

The G20 Presidency

There is no permanent chair or leader of the G20. The current G20 Presidency, the outgoing Presidency, and the candidates for the future Presidency work together as a triangle (Troika) of governments to maintain continuity. The Troika of 2022 comprises India, Italy, and Indonesia. For the first time, Indonesia holds the G20 Presidency.

The G20 Foundation 

The Group of Twenty (G20) Foundation is the top international platform for discussing the most crucial topics on the global economic and financial agenda.

The main three objectives of the G20 are; policy coordination between its members, promoting financial regulations and modernizing the international financial design.

The G20 has a crucial strategic role in ensuring future prosperity and economic progress worldwide. Together, the G20 countries account for more than 80% of global GDP, 75% of global trade, and 60% of the global population.

The G20 was first held in 1999 as a gathering of the finance ministers and governors of the central banks. But since then, it has developed into an annual summit attended by the heads of state and government.

The G20 Leaders reached a broad consensus during their first meeting in Washington on how to work together in crucial areas to support economic growth and address the financial crisis, as well as three major goals.

The first goal is the re-establishment of global economic expansion. The second is bolstering the global financial system, and lastly, the restructuring of global financial organizations.
