3-5 September 2015, Ankara



  • L20_Ankara_Evaluation 2015pdf

The G20 Labour and Finance Ministers meetings took place against the background of IMF forecasts showing falling growth in the first half of 2015 and the almost certainty that the G20’s target of an extra 2.1 % by 2018 will not be met. At their consultations with ministers in Ankara, L20 labour leaders called on the G20 to take coordinated action and invest in jobs, support minimum living wages and collective bargaining, set targets for youth employment and put responsible investment in line with these policy needs. These proposals are set out in the L20 statement.

The evaluation discusses the outcomes of the Labour and Employment Ministerial, the joint Ministerial between them and G20 Finance Ministers, as well as the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting. It also assesses their potential impact on the G20 Leaders' Summit in November.
