Three recommendations for the B20. G20 should carry on emphasizing the sustainability agenda and never leave anyone behind. <…> These are the efforts of private companies that aim to reach these goals [of sustainable development, – Ed.] — Irina Bokova, Independent Director, Chairman of the Sustainable Development Committee, PhosAgro; Director General, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization UNESCO (2009-2017) .
What’s required today are the polices and proper conditions that can help people adapt to the everchanging world. B20 and G20 in this regard should demonstrate that digital economy, transformation of labor market, industry, all spheres of out life – it is going to bring positive change and make the world more sustainable and inclusive rather than lead to job loss or bring about other risks for the people — Svetlana Lukash, Russian G20 Sherpa.
We call upon the G20 participants to take tangible measures in policies. <…> Digital transformation is a necessary element to achieve the Society 5.0 goals. B20 calls upon G20 to promote international cooperation to create a security system that would be based on risk analysis and would protect people’s privacy by different means, including free data exchange — Teruo Asada, Chair, Japan-Russia Business Cooperation Committee, Japan Business Federation (Keidanren) .
Three recommendations for the B20. First, it needs to underscore the importance of big enterprises and SME in terms of job creation. Second, the state needs to do everything in its power to provide physical infrastructure to start companies. I am talking about Internet access. Education level is of critical importance, free access to quality education — Renate Hornung-Draus, Vice President, International Organization of Employers (IOE); Managing Director, Confederation of German Employers’ Associations (BDA) .
