Today the first meeting of the G20 Finance and Central Bank Deputies was held to approve the work plan for 2021. The two-day virtual meeting was also attended by high-ranking officials from the G20 Finance Track membership, as well as representatives from guest countries and international and regional organizations.
The G20 Deputies meeting started with a discussion of digital transformation, stimulated by a keynote speech by Erik Brynjolfsson, the Jerry Yang and Akiko Yamazaki Professor and Senior Fellow at Stanford University and Director of the Stanford Digital Economy Lab.
Sustainable economic recovery and digital innovation were at the center of the agenda in accordance with the Italian G20 Presidency's priorities, which rest upon three main pillars: People, Planet and Prosperity. The three Ps represent the drivers for strong, sustainable, balanced, and inclusive economic growth.
The meetings of the Deputies will continue tomorrow, Tuesday 26 January.
