10:00—12:00
(with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs)

The Women 20 (W20) was established in May 2015 as a means of interaction between the G20 and social partners. Its mission is to support economic development in the G20 nations, with consideration given to increasing the role played by women in resolutions adopted in line with the group’s framework for strong, sustainable, and balanced growth. During Argentina’s presidency in 2018, the W20 has set itself the objective of drawing up specific proposals for G20 leaders to achieve full inclusion for girls and women in the labour market, digital economy, and agriculture, and also to provide them with full access to financial services. Participants will share their opinions on the W20’s priorities for the immediate future, including as part of Argentina’s and Japan’s presidencies in 2018 and 2019 respectively. They will also discuss the role of the G20 and key international organizations in broadening women’s economic opportunities and securing economic growth.

Topics for discussion:
  • International cooperation in the interests of women, economies, and societies.
  • The W20: Main Achievements and Future Priorities.
  • The contribution of Women20 to the G20 agenda in expanding women’s economic opportunities.
