In a previous meeting held between the B20’s presidents of companies and business organizations and the president of the G20 and president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri, Juan Rosell highlighted the uncertainty that populism and protectionism are generating among entrepreneurs, and insisted on the need to defend an open economic and commercial model that is based on rules, which has been essential during the past few decades to lift millions of people out of poverty.

During a time characterized by the rapid social and economic transformation, driven by factors such as the technological revolution, he asked the G20 to promote the necessary reforms to take full advantage of the economic and social benefits of economic digitalization.

He placed special emphasis on the need to strengthen training throughout an entire working life, in order to equip people with skills that allow them to better perform their job in an increasingly changing work environment.

In this meeting prior to the opening of the Summit, in which, together with Juan Rosell, other prominent business leaders participated, President Mauricio Macri was also introduced to the main conclusions of the B20’s working groups, which will be officially delivered on 5 October at the close of the B20 Summit.

These conclusions gather the work carried out for more than a year by the working groups, made up of representatives from the business organizations and companies from countries in the B20, in fields such as energy, efficient use of resources and sustainability; employment and education; trade and investment; financial development and infrastructures; digital economy and industry 4.0; sustainable food systems; integrity and compliance; SME development.
