in: G20: China - the Hangzhou Summit, Toronto: Univ. of Toronto, 160-161
Critical observers have long questioned the genuine commitment of the G20 to the developing world, notwithstanding the introduction of the G20’s Development Working Group in 2010. A significant evolution of the G20’s identity may now be in the making. The current Chinese presidency seems determined to open a new chapter of the group’s engagement for the global common good. At the Hangzhou Summit, leaders are expected to adopt an ambitious, potentially transformative document: the G20 action plan for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development.
