G20 countries: Total GDP, GDP per capita and population in 2020

The G20 remains an informal forum, without international legal representation. Its presidency rotates every year between the member states. The state holding the presidency establishes its priorities and the agendas for the various meetings. G20 activities include the annual meetings of heads of state or government (the ‘summits’), and regular meetings of finance ministers, central bank governors, sherpas (personal representatives of countries’ leaders), meetings of ministers from various sectors, as well as meetings of various stakeholders (referred to as ‘engagement groups’), such as business groups, labour unions, women’s groups and civil society organisations.
The involvement of civil society in the G20 summits has broadened over the years. ‘G20 engagement groups’ bring together relevant stakeholders to discuss topics relating to entrepreneurship, labour, youth, women’s empowerment, urban policies, sustainable development and the fight against inequalities. Under the 2021 Italian presidency, the following engagement groups have met: ‘Business’, ‘Think’ (leading think tanks and research centres), ‘Women’, ‘Youth’, ‘Labour’ (trade union leaders), ‘Urban’ (made up of 25 cities from within the G20 countries), ‘Civil’ (open civil society community), and ‘Science’ (academies of science of the G20.).
