China and G20: From a Think Tank Case Perspective

  • Wen Wang


The G20 has become the most important global governance institution. Since the global financial crisis of 2008, leaders from 20 major economies around the world met in Washington, DC to discuss how to deal with the crisis. Through coordinated cooperation, the G20 not only contributed to solving this crisis but also developed into a maturing institution in global economic and financial governance. In the annual G20 Summit, leaders from developed and developing countries can freely exchange their ideas regarding the most critical issues in global economy. The G20 plays an increasingly significant role in building a platform for coordinating different countries’ economic policy so that the global goal of economic growth can be realized.
