Business at OECD Involvement
Business at OECD (BIAC) supports the B20 Dialogue, which offers advice to the rotating G20 presidencies. We ensure continuity in the B20 process by actively participating in all B20 taskforces. We also share positions which are influential in shaping the B20 agenda across themes, and by facilitating meetings with the OECD leadership and governments in Paris.
G20 and B20 Germany
In 2017, BIAC continues its broad engagement with the German B20. We are working closely with our German members BDI and BDA as they took the lead of the B20. We participate in all German B20 taskforces, and acts as an official network partner for the Digitalization taskforce and the Responsible Business Conduct and Anti Corruption thematic group.
In cooperation with B20 Germany and the OECD, we co-hosted the final meeting of all B20 Task Forces and Cross-thematic Groups in Paris on 22 March 2017. This final physical meeting before the B20 Summit in May focused on the advocacy of B20 recommendations prior to the G20 Sherpa meeting. Read our press release here.
On 8 December 2016, Business at OECD also organized its annual Business Day discussing OECD contributions to the G20 and B20. This unique event connected business leaders with key OECD representatives and B20 leadership.
