Concerning the G20

The G20 is an intergovernmental organization composed of 19 countries and the European Union (EU). It strives to address important global economic concerns such as climate change mitigation, international financial stability, and long-term development. It is made up of the majority of the world's greatest economies, both developed and developing. It produces 90% of the world's gross domestic product (GDP), 75–80% of international trade, half of the world's land area, and two-thirds of the world's people.

When was G20 founded?

In 1999, the G20 was established. It has met at least once a year since 2008. Each member state's head of government or state, foreign minister, finance minister, and other senior officials attend the summits. The European Commission and the European Central Bank represent the EU.

Troika of the G20
