The G20 (or G-20 or Group of Twenty) "is an international forum for the governments and central bank governors from 20 major economies.
It was founded in 1999 with the aim of studying, reviewing, and promoting high-level discussion of policy issues pertaining to the promotion of international financial stability. It seeks to address issues that go beyond the responsibilities of any one organization. The G20 heads of government
or heads of state have periodically conferred at summits since their initial meeting in 2008,
and the group also hosts separate meetings of finance ministers and central bank governors.
The members include 19 individual countries—Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States—along with the European Union (EU). The EU is represented by the European Commission and by the European Central Bank. Collectively, the G20 economies account for around 85% of the gross world product (GWP), 80% of world trade (or, if excluding EU intra-trade, 75%), and two-thirds of the world population."
Les statuettes des leaders du G20 sont exposées dans une vitrines à Hangzhou en Chine à quelques jours de l'ouverture du sommet.
