The G20 is a unique group representing three quarters of the world’s population and 85% of global GNP, and therefore the most representative format for international interaction. It was created at the initiative of the United States and Canada at the G8 summit on September 26, 1999, as the annual meeting of finance ministers from the 19 most developed countries and the EU. The first G20 summit was held in 2008 and was dubbed the “anti-crisis summit” because it addressed issues related to the global financial crisis.
