G20 Beyond U.S.-China Tensions: What the G18 Want and Need
Wednesday, June 26, 2019, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Flom Auditorium, 6th Floor | 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20004
This event is free and open to the media.
Trade concerns continue to blight the outlook for global growth as the leaders of the world’s most influential countries gather in Osaka, Japan in late June. While relations between the United States and China will invariably be the focus of attention during the G20 summit meeting, the annual event is also a chance for key powers to address common threats and challenges beyond the ongoing tensions of the world’s biggest economies.
Join us for a discussion on the unique opportunities the G20 provides to coordinate national economic policies multilaterally on the one hand, and the obstacles facing the group of countries of various stages of development and systems of governance on the other.
