Participants—slated to include a number of G20 heads of state, representatives from international organisations, government officials, leading business executives, and academic and economic experts from more than 70 countries—will discuss advancing and accelerating public-private collaboration on critical global issues such as COVID-19 vaccination, job creation, and climate change.
