The Presidents of the business confederations of the G20 countries, as well as 120 CEOs and Chairmen from a number of global companies have been working together for several months. They are gathered in 12 working groups which are co-chaired by a company CEO and a President of business organization to elaborate concrete proposals. These proposals will be presented to the Head of State and Government and taken into account in the G20 final conclusions.
