G20 Buenos Aires Summit 2018

 

The 13th G20 summit will place in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 30 November to 1 December 2018. The G20 is the central forum for international cooperation on financial and economics issues.

The overarching theme of this summit is "Building Consensus for Fair and Sustainable Development" and Argentine President Mauricio Macri has highlighted three priorities: 1) the future of work, with the goal of  "unleashing people's potential"; 2) infrastructure for development, by "mobilizing private resources to reduce the infrastructure deficit"; and 3)  a sustainable food future by "improving soils and increasing productivity".

The following blogs and policy briefs were written by members of the University of Sheffield's GLI team at the G20 Buenos Aires Summit. The GLI team consists of Matthew Bishop, Holly Barden, Holly Clarke, Hugo Dobson, Jamie Firby, Eleanor Harris, Marianne Quinn, Alex Reynolds, Vipran Srivastava and Tom Wymer.
