The G20 Summit begins at Osaka in Japan today.
The theme of the summit is “Human-Centred Future Societies”.
19 countries, the European Union and several special invitees are participating at the Osaka Summit which will see discussions on the Global Economy, Trade & Investment, Innovations in the Digital Economy & Artificial Intelligence, Addressing Inequalities, Realizing an Inclusive & Sustainable World, and Climate Change Energy & Environment.
The impetus for the current G20 Summit was the global financial meltdown in 2008, when leaders gathered to discuss how to prevent a similar crisis from happening again.
One of the most urgent tasks facing the G-20 members is to regain confidence in the multilateral trading system, given the fact that trade tensions have started to weigh heavily on the prospects of growth.
