Group of Twenty
Australia chaired the Group of Twenty (G20) meetings from 1 December 2013 to 30 November 2014.
The G20 is the most influential global economic body, representing the largest developed and emerging economies in the world with members from 19 countries plus the European Union. It represents 85 per cent of global GDP, more than 75 per cent of world trade, and more than 65 per cent of the world's population.
Hosting the G20 gave Australia a valuable opportunity to welcome leaders, Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors, Trade Ministers and Employment and Labour Ministers from major developing and advanced economies to address critical economic and financial challenges facing the world.
A number of departments had lead responsibilities under Australia's G20 host year.
The 2015 G20 Chair is Turkey. For more information please visit the current G20 website.
