The Business 20 and Labour 20 identify policy priorities for the G20 Leaders’ Meeting in regard to business and labour agenda respectively. Building on its experience, the OECD participates in the work of the B20 and L20:




The OECD supported the work of the B20 since the French presidency. Under the Russian Presidency, the Organisation participated in all seven B20 Task Forces (Investment and Infrastructure, Financial System, Trade as Growth Driver, Innovation and Development, Jobs Creation/Employment, Transparency and Anti-corruption, G20-B20 Dialogue Efficiency) and provided substantive contributions in the areas of anti-corruption, trade, investment and infrastructure and B20-G20 dialogue efficiency. For example, the OECD, jointly with the successive G20 presidencies (France, then Mexico and Russia)  organized high-level public-private conferences on anti-corruption.  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 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 and presenting our policy recommendations in these domains.
