Mexican Presidency of the G20
Mexico will chair the G20 in 2012 and host the Leaders’ Summit in June this year. By assuming the annual Presidency of the G20, Mexico, the second emerging country and the first in Latin America to do so, confirms its role as a responsible and influential actor, both regionally and globally.
Mexico is firmly committed to the success of the Summit with regards to the agreements reached and the positive impact they will have on the world economy. The Mexican Presidency will seek to follow up on previous agreements and will also work to make important contributions to these and other issues on the G20 agenda. Moreover, Mexico will encourage the active and vigorous participation of non-members, international organizations, think tanks and the private sector in order to make the G20 dialogue as inclusive, open and transparent as possible.
With this goal in mind, Mexico has established the following priorities:
1. Economic stabilization and structural reforms as foundations for growth and employment.
2. Strengthening the financial system and fostering financial inclusion to promote economic growth.
3. Improving the international financial architecture in an interconnected world.
4. Enhancing food security and addressing commodity price volatility.
5. Promoting sustainable development, green growth and the fight against climate change.
