G20 Logo_14 November

Antalya, 13 November 2015 – The G20 Leaders’ Summit, hosted by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, will be held in Antalya on 15 – 16 November.

Azerbaijan, Spain, Malaysia, Senegal, Singapore and Zimbabwe will also participate in the Antalya Summit together with the G20 members.

Approximately 13 thousand guests—of which 2,469 are media members—will participate in the two-day summit.

More than 70 meetings, including the ones at a ministerial level, have been held under the Turkish Presidency since 1 December, 2014.

The first Energy Ministers Meeting in the history of G20 was held in Istanbul on 2 October, 2015.

The strengthening of SMEs as economic forces that boost global employment, and the integration of SMEs into the global economy have been discussed, leading to the founding of the World SME Forum – a first during the Turkish Presidency.

The three main themes of this year’s G20 Summit were chosen as “inclusiveness, investment and implementation” based on the Turkish Presidency’s priorities. Within this framework, strengthening the global economy and making it more inclusive, deepening the dialogue and cooperation between G20 countries and Low Income Developing Countries (LIDCs), sustainable development, increasing investments, and implementation and follow-up on G20 commitments will be the main topics discussed in the Summit this year.

The Summit will commence with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s welcoming ceremony of the G20 Leaders on 15 November and will continue with a working lunch in which the topics of development and climate change will be discussed. During the Summit, apart from the sessions that will gather leaders, the “Women-20” engagement group formed during the Turkish G20 Presidency will be represented.

Following the reception that Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu will host in honour of the Leaders and Spouses, there will be a working dinner hosted by President Erdoğan on the topic of “Global Challenges: Terrorism and the Refugee Crisis”.

On the second day of the Summit, financial regulations, the international tax agenda, anti-corruption actions and IMF reforms will be evaluated in the “Increasing Resilience” session. After this, during a working lunch, trade and energy issues will be discussed and the Antalya Action Plan will be adopted.

The Summit will conclude with a presentation given by the Chinese President, who will assume the 2016 G20 Presidency.

Finally, the results of the Antalya Summit will be announced globally with a press conference by the Turkish President.
