Event overview

With Asia increasingly becoming the economic centre of gravity, November's G20 Summit provides an opportunity for Australia to take the lead and showcase our ability to influence global economic activity. But what is the best way for us to do this? Have the G20 drivers been adequately met by the five stakeholder partners to achieve the best outcomes for Australia?

CEDA's G20 report brings together leading thinkers from the international governance, finance and taxation fields to examine the issues associated with the G20's role in today's globalised world and their insights on:

  • The current state of play in international governance;
  • G20's strengths and weaknesses given prevailing conditions and Australia's challenges in chairing the 2014 Leaders' Summit;
  • G20's role in reforming the international financial system and an assessment of what remains to be done; and
  • G20's role in reforming the international tax regime

All guests will receive a complimentary copy of Australia's Brisbane Summit challenge: Securing G20's future.
