The Business 20 (B20) is the official G20 dialogue forum with the global business community.

The B20 leads the process of galvanizing global business leaders for their views on issues of global economic and trade governance and speaks in a single voice for the entire G20 business community.

Chandrasekaran stated, “As India commences its leadership of B20 amid multiple global developments and transformations, the participation of businesses in global economic decision-making has never been more critical. We believe that a renewed strategy for businesses to strengthen global collaborations will foster economic stability, progress and growth that is inclusive and sustainable. B20 India will take forward the global B20 agenda for equitable development and highlight solutions to G20 India for meeting the challenges of the future.”

B20 India has identified priorities for deliberations under the theme “R.A.I.S.E – Responsible, Accelerated, Innovative, Sustainable, and Equitable Businesses.” About 100 business policy initiatives will be organized by CII under the B20 calendar across the country during the Presidency year.

B20 India’s agenda focuses on integration into global value chains and building trade resilience, innovation and R&D, and skilling and mobility of workers, amongst others. It will also prioritize financing growth and sustainable infrastructure, and financial inclusion. Energy, climate change and efficiency in utilisation of resources will be an important part of the agenda, along with the digital transformation. B20 India aims to catalyze business responsibility for sustainability, integrity & compliance, and work towards business participation in Africa’s growth story as additional priorities.

B20 India work will be conducted through Task Forces and Action Councils, which will develop consensus-based policy recommendations to the G20.
B20 India will commence work on various taskforces and action councils after the inception meeting, scheduled on 22-24 January 2023, culminating in the B20 India Summit in August 2023. UNI SJC KK SSP
