B20 China Chair
Message from Jiang Zengwei, Chair of B20 China and Chairman of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade
As chair of the B20 China, I extend a very warm welcome to leaders from the international business community, international organizations, consultancies, experts and scholars from all over the world. China is proud to be the host of the 2016 G20 and B20.
At present, the world economy is undergoing fundamental readjustment and the road to overall recovery faces many hardships and setbacks. Achieving strong, sustainable and balanced development in the global economy still has a long way to go. At this critical moment, exchanges and consultations among business communities across the world are particularly necessary to develop practical and sustainable solutions to support global development. The B20 is essential to the success of the G20.
Over the next year, building on previous B20 policy recommendation reports, we will hold a series of taskforce meetings and conferences with B20 members and partners. This process will focus on global economic growth, trade and investment, infrastructure, SME development, employment and anti-corruption as their focus, and will foster communication and develop consensus between all parties. We look forward to submitting the international business community’s policy recommendations to the G20 Summit.
In this age of globalization and regional economic integration, countries all over the world face similar challenges and share the same trajectories. It is my hope that the international business community, international organizations, consultancies and scholars will work closely together to host a successful B20 thereby contributing to boosting the innovative development, building an open world economy and enhancing global economic governance.
