Recommendations to strengthen economic growth and development across the globe
The Group of Twenty (G-20), represented by the world’s most industrialized economies, is a policy forum for discussing critical global economic issues and finding solutions to achieve stability in the world economy. Founded in September 1999, the G-20 consisted of finance ministers and central bank governors tasked to address the Asian financial crisis. It continued to meet annually to help coordinate responses to international economic crises, particularly those in emerging markets. In response to the 2008 global financial crisis, leaders of the G-20 countries met for the first time in November 2008 in Washington to coordinate a global response to the crisis. Since then, G-20 leaders have continued to meet regularly to help ensure the global recovery.
Experts from Global Economy and Development at Brookings analyze a range of critical issues and offer policy recommendations for the G-20 leaders to consider at each of their summits in order to strengthen economic growth and development across the globe.
The Brookings Institution is a private nonprofit organization devoted to independent research and innovative policy solutions. For nearly 100 years, Brookings has analyzed current and emerging issues and produced new ideas that matter—for the nation and the world.
