While the first Sherpa Meeting agreed on the general direction and priority areas of the preparations for the upcoming G20 Hangzhou Summit, this second meeting will have in-depth discussions on major topics and reach to a broad consensus on the substance of potential deliverables. To this end, G20 members should keep the level of ambition, uphold the spirit of partnership and lay emphasis on substantive contents, to promote jointly the preparation of Hangzhou Summit.

The 11th Summit of G20 will be held on 4-5 September in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. This Sherpa Meeting will engage in discussions on such topics including world economy, innovative growth, trade and investment, Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, energy, anti-corruption, climate change, employment and food security under the theme “Towards an Innovative, Invigorated, Interconnected and Inclusive World Economy”, to expand the common ground and prepare for the Hangzhou Summit.
