Finance

The Argentine G20 Presidency began with a meeting of finance deputies in the mountain town of Bariloche on 30 November – 2 December 2017. Argentina then hosted finance ministers and central bank governors meetings on 19–20 March and 21–22 July. Additional meetings will be held on the margins of the spring and annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group. Finally, the finance ministers and central bank governors will convene along with their respective heads of State or Government at the Leaders' Summit.

The agenda of the Finance Track will be coordinated by the Argentine Ministry of the Treasury and the Central Bank, and will be centred on: 

The future of work

Technological advances have generated profound changes in the global economy. This transformation offers huge opportunities and structural challenges for economic growth and quality of life, and has a strong impact on the job market. For this reason, Argentina proposes a dialogue on the effect of technological advances on productivity, growth, the job market and economic equality.

Infrastructure for development

The growing gap in infrastructure is a relevant issue for most G20 countries, and especially for the developing world. Closing this gap as a means to help promote inclusive growth is a key objective of the Argentine G20 Presidency. Given the size of the infrastructure deficit, more financing from the private sector is needed.

The wide agenda of the G20 Finance Track includes the following topics:

  • Global economy and framework for growth
  • Infrastructure
  • International financial architecture
  • International taxation
  • Financial regulation
  • Financial inclusion
  • Sustainable finance
