The G20 is in the process of establishing itself as the prominent format for political discussion of global financial and economic issues. Still, there are significant differences of appreciation amongst G20 countries. Positions taken by developed countries are widely commented, but emerging countries have fewer opportunities to express their views and to promote their own expertise at international level.

The event attempts at filling this gap and will take place in New Delhi in September 2009, shortly before the G20 Pittsburg summit and the October meetings of the IMF and World Bank. It will gather ca. 100 academics and senior policymakers, mostly from central banks and finance ministries of G20 countries and from international organizations, as well as representatives from the private sector.

A short document is expected to be published jointly by Bruegel, CEPII and ICRIER following the conference and building on its proceedings. If successful, the conference could later be organized on an annual basis.
