What is TF 8 Multilateralism and Global Governance?

As the foremost platform for international dialogue on global economic and financial issues, the G20 plays an important role in establishing high-level standards in global governance. T20 is the official engagement group of the G20, bringing together the world’s leading think tanks and research centers. T20 is essentially the G20 think tank, working to provide research-based policy recommendations to G20 leaders. T20 is an important addition to key G20 agendas and a crucial platform for global think tank representatives to share their knowledge and insights. The considerable influence of T20 in policy making and implementation in the context of the G20 makes it a focus for a number of global players.

TF 8 Multilateralism and Global Governance examined 62 policy recommendations submitted by the most policy-influential think tanks around the world. Ten were selected during the first co-chair meeting, establishing a foundation for policy recommendations to be presented at the T20 meeting.

As one of the world’s top 100 non-governmental think tanks, CCG is committed to studies on globalization, global governance and international relations. CCG is deeply involved in global governance and has contributed solutions unique to the perspective of Chinese think tanks. CCG has also participated in and held multiple international forums not only enhancing China’s position in global health governance in response to Covid-19, but also economic recovery, climate change and other global agendas serving to further China’s globalization efforts and give it a louder voice on international issues, enabling China to contribute to global multilateral cooperation and global development in the post-pandemic era.
