The B20 brings together business leaders, government ministers and provincial governors in the Patagonian province of Neuquén
The fifth edition of the B20 Business Leaders Forum under the Argentinian G20 presidency was organized in the province of Neuquén, in northern Patagonia.
The Forum was attended by business leaders and governmental representatives from Argentina and other G20 member countries. Argentina’s Chief of the Cabinet of Ministers Marcos Peña welcomed the participants.
Regional economies, employment, infrastructure and energy were some of the topics on the agenda.
“The G20 gives Argentina the opportunity to offer our vision, our perspectives and take a leading role within the international community. The core message of our presidency has to do with building consensus towards fair and sustainable development,” said Marcos Peña in his opening remarks. “This vision is about coordinating actions, supporting multilateralism and finding positive perspectives on globalization; it’s about not shutting our borders off, precisely because we are living proof of the negative implications of being closed to the world,” he added.
“We have organized the Business Leaders Forum with the aim of taking our debates to the rest of the country and listening to the perspectives of those representing SMEs and regional economies,” said Daniel Funes de Rioja, B20 chair.
This event is part of the B20’s programme that takes to it different parts of the country, allowing local actors from regional economies to have a voice and help the group prepare recommendations that will be sent to the G20 leaders.
The last Business Leaders Forum will be held in the province of Buenos Aires on 23 August 2018, while the B20 Summit will take place in the city of Buenos Aires on 4 and 5 October 2018.
