INDONESIA’S G20 PRESIDENCY
RECOVER TOGETHER RECOVER STRONGER
As the global pandemic continues to affect all sectors of life, the future of our shared prosperity relies on our collective ability to create an inclusive and sustainable foundation for growth
Recognition of the importance of collective action and inclusive collaboration among major developed countries and emerging economies around the world has always been the core purpose of the G20.
Today, the world needs it more than ever. The global pandemic has affected every aspect of the society, from health, education, to international trade. At the same time, gaps in countries’ capacities to address the crisis continue to prevent the world from fully controlling the common problems and crises facing us right now.
Understanding the challenges and the need for collective action, Indonesia will focus on three main pillars for its G20 2022 Presidency namely: Global Health Architecture, Sustainable Energy Transition, and Digital Transformation. Through these pillars, Indonesia will continue to take the lead on ensuring equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines, promoting sustainable and inclusive economic development through MSMEs participation and digital economy. While also maintaining the aspiration to continue to improve our collective capacity in securing the shared prosperity among nations, through various reform efforts in global taxation, stronger cooperation in fighting corruption, deepening of infrastructure financing, and pushing for a more democratic, and representative international cooperation.
GLOBAL HEALTH ARCHITECTURE
The path to global recovery requires stronger collective cooperation that ensures equality of global health standards and closer collaboration to ensure the global community’s resilience towards any future pandemic.
The global impact of the pandemic should be a momentum for the global community to start holding hands together. Through the G20 forum, Indonesia will encourage the strengthening of global health resilience and help make a global health system more inclusive, equitable, and responsive to crises.
The discussion of global health architecture issues will be the focus of a series of meetings on Indonesia’s G20 Presidency. Addressing pandemic preparedness and advancing transformative infrastructure post-COVID-19 will be discussed through various forums, namely; Health Working Group, Joint Finance and Health Task Force, Development Working Group, Civil 20, Science 20, and many more.
Achieving the true potentials from the rapid digitalization of the global economy requires a new landscape of cooperation among nations and all stakeholders to secure common prosperity in the digital age.
Restoring the post-pandemic global economic order to be stronger, inclusive and collaborative by leveraging digitalization is essential in overcoming various problems of mankind, digitalization is the key. The discussion of the agenda for creating a more inclusive digital transformation to the world shows how significant the role of the G20 forum is to the world.
Digital and economic cross-issues including the acceleration of MSMEs into the digital ecosystem, digital entrepreneurship, and revitalizing the role of women in the workplace by increasing digital capabilities are some of the priority agendas that will be discussed. These issues will be discussed through several forums namely; Economy Working Group, G20 Empower, Business 20, and many more.
SUSTAINABLE ENERGY TRANSITION
As we continue the global effort to ensure energy security, the urgent need to accelerate the transition towards cleaner energy sources will need to be addressed with new approaches and dimensions, ensuring a cleaner and brighter future for the global community.
The impacts of climate change are becoming increasingly real and are beginning to affect local and global development. However, this energy transition requires a very large investment. G20 member countries share a big responsibility in ensuring energy sustainability can run optimally and providing a platform for investment.
Conversations about the environment and energy in the form of Securing Energy Accessibility, Increasing Smart & Clean Energy Technology, and Promoting Energy Financing will be discussed at various meetings such as the Energy Transitions Working Group and the Environment Deputies and Climate Sustainability Working Group.
The 17th G20 Heads of State and Government Summit will take place in 2022 on 15-16 November in Bali. The Summit will be the pinnacle of the G20 process and intense work carried out within the Ministerial Meetings, Working Groups, and Engagement Groups throughout the year.
