Indonesia's B20 presidency will focus on three main visions, namely:
In the B20 Presidency, 7 task forces (Task Force)/Action Council has been formed which include Trade and Investment, Future of Work and Education, Finance & Infrastructure, Energy, Climate and Sustainability, Integrity and Compliance, as well as the Women in Business Action Council. These taskforces have been formed to ensure that the policy recommendations provided are inclusive, sustainable and improve welfare and economic recovery, for both Indonesia and other G20 countries.
In an effort to fulfill this vision, B20 Indonesia seeks policy recommendations that are mutually beneficial in the global ecosystem andinclusive growth that will be enjoyed by all levels of society, and balances short-term momentum with long-term impacts.
The policy recommendations that will be drawn up will later uphold the philosophy of Recovery - recovery that strengthens the global economy in the post-pandemic period, Reform - reforms that shape the economy in the new normal, and Resilience - resilience that creates a policy of being able to withstand an uncertain situation.
In addition, the B20 Presidency also provides momentum for Indonesia to showcase structural reform measures in the midst of a pandemic, such as the issuance of the Omnibus Law on Job Creation and the Indonesia Investment Authority (Sovereign Wealth Fund). This, in turn, will increase the confidence of global investors, help accelerate economic recovery and encourage mutually beneficial economic partnerships at a global level.
