G20 › Stakeholders
The Business 20 (B20) and Labour 20 (L20) identify policy priorities from a private sector and trade unions perspective respectively for consideration by G20 Leaders at the Summit. Drawing on its wealth of policy expertise, the OECD contributes to informing the work of the B20 and L20:
The OECD has been supporting the work of the B20 since the French presidency. Since, the Russian Presidency, the Organisation has been closely associated to the work of the various B20 sectoral Task Forces and provided substantive contributions in the areas of anti-corruption, trade, human capital, innovation, investment and infrastructure. As a result, B20 recommendations make extensive reference to OECD analysis, guidelines, principles and legal instruments. We are also partnering with the B20 to organise high level policy meetings and seminars: For example, over the last 4 years, the OECD, has been organising, jointly with the incumbent G20 and B20 Presidencies, a yearly high-level public-private conference on anti-corruption. In May 2014, in the margins of the OECD week, the OECD hosted a meeting of the B20 Task Forces that gathered over a hundred CEOs and top level business representatives. Partnering closely with BIAC and the B20, the OECD will pursue its efforts to enhance the dialogue between business and governments, by participating in all task forces and by organising public-private consultations.
The OECD maintains a constant dialogue with Trade Unions, in particular in preparation of L20 Summits that are generally organized back-to-back with Leader Summits. The OECD contributes to framing the discussions at L20 Summits: the Secretary General is usually invited to address the participants and representatives from Trade Unions, sharing the Organisation’s expertise on employment and labour market issues, responsible business conduct, tax, redistribution, social policies, inequalities, etc. and presenting our policy recommendations in these domains.
Civil G20 is a meeting for policy dialogue between G20 members and representatives of civil society organisations working on the issues related to the agenda of G20 Summit.
The Think 20 is a meeting of academia, research centres and think thanks from developed and developing countries who help to create ideas on improving global governance which can then be formulated into practical recommendations.
Youth 20 is a grouping of young leaders from across the G20. The OECD has been a partner of the Y20 under the Australian Presidency and participated in the Youth 20 Summit in Sydney on July 12-15, 2014.
