Dear colleagues,

On December 1st, 2012, Russia has taken over the Group of Twenty (G20) Presidency while The Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) has taken chair in Business 20 (B20) activity. Following the success of B20 summits in Toronto, Seoul, Cannes and Los Cabos we intend to consolidate the progress to advance the G20 ― B20 dialogue and coordinate actions to generate strong, sustainable and balanced global growth.

B20 will bring together leading CEOs and heads of international organizations from the G20 countries to develop actionable recommendations aligned with the G20 goals, members' countries contexts, and Russia's priorities for G20 presidency.

 Our priority is that the B20 recommendations should promote G20 ― B20 shared objective of successful global growth. Through the work of B20 Task Forces we will focus on the topics of investment and infrastructure, financial systems ― restoring confidence and growth; trade as a growth driver; innovation and development as a global priority; job creation, employment and investments in human capital; transparency and anti-corruption.

 Our goal is to ensure continuity and enhance impact of B20 recommendations and G20 decisions for global economic recovery by tracking and promoting their implementation in G20 countries. This task will be taken up by G20 ― B20 Dialogue Efficiency Task Force.

We look forward to a productive cooperation and hope that together we will steer global economy towards strong growth and job creation.

RSPP President
