Event overview

In advance of the G20 Summit in Brisbane in November 2014, CEDA will release the policy perspective Australia's Brisbane Summit challenge: Securing G20's future to examine the role, effectiveness and processes at the heart of the G20.

Has the G20 become just another global discussion, or is the role of the G20 as relevant today as it was during the global financial crisis of 2008/2009?

As globalisation continues to rise, and in light of the growth of multi-party and regional trade agreements, gaining a policy understanding of the role the G20 plays in developing financial and taxation regulation has never been more relevant to Australia's economic and business communities.

CEDA's Australia's Brisbane Summit challenge: Securing G20's future will examine:

  • Financial regulation: Assessing international financial regulation architecture;
  • G20's role in developing productive international economic policy and governance; and
  • Taxation issues such as global tax avoidance and the role of the G20 in addressing these issues.
