Global Solutions Summit opens with the G20 Japan’s research and policy advice network

10. April 2019 - 14:17


The third Global Solutions Summit in Berlin, Germany kicked off with calls for a paradigm change to recouple social, economic and political progress.

Some 1,200 individuals attended the Global Solutions Summit, a Think20 Japan associated event, with 221 speakers from 120 countries giving presentations in 60 sessions. “This research community is connected to communities of business leaders and policymakers worldwide, cognizant that none can achieve their goals independently of the others,” Global Solutions President Dennis J. Snower said.

This is the third summit supporting the T20 process, helping establish the international think-tank network as the intellectual backbone of the G20. The summit program is focused on priorities set by the Japanese G20 Presidency’s 2019 Task Forces: sustainable development, infrastructure finance, financial architecture, trade and investment, climate change, future of work and education, social cohesion and the future of politics, SME policy, and policies for aging populations.

Together, the world’s leading think tanks will guide policy innovations to help G20 leaders address pressing global challenges.

The summit welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel, EU Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans and G20 Sherpas from Germany (2017), Argentina (2018) and Saudi Arabia, which holds the T20/G20 Presidency in 2020.

GSI President Snower also presented Chancellor Merkel with this year’s new edition of the Global Solutions Journal. Download the journal here.

On the Horizon

In the months following the Global Solutions Summit, T20 Japan will finalize its work on the Task Force Policy Briefs.

These Policy Briefs will then be presented at the T20 Japan Summit in Tokyo, Japan in May and available on the G20 Insights platform soon.
