30 November 2016
“Shaping an interconnected world” that is the motto of Germany’s G20 Presidency from 1 December 2016 to 30 November 2017. Today, Chancellor Angela Merkel presented the key G20 topics to the Cabinet. Germany would like to use its G20 Presidency to intensify international cooperation. It is the G20’s job to ensure that globalisation benefits everyone. The aim is to strengthen the benefits of globalisation and worldwide interconnectedness, and to ensure that more people reap benefits. The German government is thus setting a course diametrically opposed to isolationism and any return to nationalism.
