ACHIEVING GREATER DEVELOPMENT IMPACT: COLLABORATING ACROSS THE SYSTEM
Recent months have taken the discussion of the global economy increasingly away from “synchronized growth” in the direction of “desynchronization”. This session will discuss this phenomenon, against the backdrop of weaker indicators in Europe, increasing market turbulence in emerging markets, and potential for more trade tensions looking forward. This panel will debate the global growth picture, risks and potential for policy makers to help bolster and smooth the outlook.
The next decade is critical. The G20 Eminent Persons Group members will discuss the Group’s proposals to exploit a largely untapped potential for collaboration: to reduce risk, catalyze vastly larger private investment, and achieve much greater impact in development, and in managing the growing pressures in the global commons.
