260 pages de propositions à destination
des dirigeants du G20
Final report with appendices
The G20 Summit in Cannes, France, from 3-4 November 2011 is taking place at a pivotal moment when the global economy is at a crossroads. In these challenging times, stronger, more coordinated leadership from the G20 is necessary to address both the immediate and longer-term global economic challenges. Comprehensive collaboration between the business sector and governments across the G20 is also essential for the global business community to communicate its perspective on the obstacles to new investment, job creation and growth. It is important that governments listen to businesses and work with them to reboot the flagging recovery and find new drivers of growth.
The French Presidency appointed the MEDEF, the largest association of employers in France, to assemble panels of business leaders to develop proposals for the consideration of G20 leaders, and organize the B20 Summit in cooperation with other business organizations from all the G20 countries. The World Economic Forum and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) also brought together panels of CEOs to make recommendations for the G20. MEDEF, the Forum and the ICC joined forces and drafted an integrated set of proposals. In total, some 200 heads of small, medium and large corporations from around the world, as well as representatives of 23 business organizations from across the G20, were involved in working groups on the most pressing issues facing the global economy.
This volume contains the final report from this effort that conveys, in an integrated and concise way, the key recommendations developed by the B20 working groups and those of the World Economic Forum and the ICC. The contributors engaged in deliberations over several months to shape a package of concrete actions that G20 leaders could take in Cannes to drive and strengthen economic growth in a more sustainable, balanced and inclusive manner. The working groups have also issued specific commitments on the part of the business sector to support a new, more action-oriented agenda. As a legitimate and representative voice of global business, the B20 is prepared to work with the G20 to implement the measures and policies proposed in this action plan.
The recommendations in this document are the collective opinions of the respective working group members alone. They do not represent any institutional view of the World Economic Forum or the International Chamber of Commerce, and they do not necessarily reflect the positions of the companies of participating CEOs.
At this critical juncture, it is important that business and civil society join forces with governments to develop and implement solutions to the complex and interconnected risks the world is facing.
The business leaders of the world welcome this challenge and stand ready to do their part.
