Functioning of G20

The G20 agenda is annual and includes more than 50 meetings, enhanced by working groups and discussions between permanent members and guests. The cycle concludes with the Leaders Summit.

The flow of these meetings is channelled through 2 channels: The Finance Channel and The Sherpas Channel.

  1. The Finance Channel: It covers meetings between finance ministers and central bank governors, as well as meetings of their second lines and working groups on financial issues.
  2. The Sherpas Channel: It covers non-financial issues – political commitment,  development, gender equality, trade and energy, climate change, etc.

The G20 Troika: Every year, when a new country assumes the presidency, it works for hand in hand with the previous presidency and the next presidency. This is known as the troika. This ensures continuity in the group’s agenda.
