MOSCOW, May 18 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Embassy in London will host a meeting of the Business 20 Organising Committee, comprised of chairmen of the G20 countries entrepreneurs’ unions, on May 21.
Russia will be presented by Alexander Shokhin, President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and B20 Chairman. The delegates will discuss the preparation of the Business 20 Summit to be held within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 20-21, 2013.
The meeting agenda also includes a review of the B20 Task Forces' draft recommendations for the G20 Leaders (Green Book). The Task Forces bring together leading CEOs and representatives of business organisations from the G20 members, heads of international organisations and expert partners.
The draft recommendations are published at the website http://www.b20russia.com, and Business 20 invites a wide range of stakeholders to attend consultations on how to foster economic recovery and global rebalancing. These recommendations will be discussed at the Business 20 Summit. The feedback received prior and during the B20 Summit will be reflected in the White Book to be published on the eve of the G20 St. Petersburg Summit.
The Organising Committee will also discuss the Memorandum of Understanding on the B20 functioning principles.
A press opportunity is scheduled with the participation of Alexander Shokhin and Richard Goyder, Managing Director of the Wesfarmers Limited Company, who will chair Business 20 within the period of Australia’s G20 Presidency in 2014.
