The Berlin T20 (Think Tanks 20) conference was part of the official programme of the three Chinese think tanks mandated by their government to lead the T20 process during the country’s G20 presidency in 2016. The conference centred on the contributions of the G20 to the implementation of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with a particular focus on international cooperation in support of developing countries. In order to link the debates in Berlin with the 2030 Agenda, key dimensions of the relevant document (“Transforming Our World”) were integrated into the programme: People, Planet, and Prosperity as well as Partnership. The Berlin conference also addressed the priorities of the Chinese presidency and explored potential linkages to the German G20 presidency in 2017.
