B20 Special Workshop in Boao Forum for Asia

The Business 20 (B20) Special Workshop will be held from 9:15 to 11:40 in the morning of March 23, during the annual meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia.

The B20 2016 Host Committee plans to brief attending representatives of political, business and academic circles, as well as those of international organizations, about initial ideas for B20 China’s policy recommendations, and, through discussions, to ensure the representatives’ opinions will be reflected in the recommendations for G20 members geared towards strong, sustainable and balanced growth in the global economy.

The B20 provides a significant platform for the international business community to participate in global economic governance and international economic and trade regulation.

The B20 China 2016 has established five taskforces - financing growth, trade and investment, small and medium-sized enterprise development, infrastructure, and employment. It also includes an anti-corruption forum.
