Antalya to host G20 summit in 2015


In 2015, G20 leaders' summit will be held in Antalya, Turkey. 


The summit will be held in Antalya on November 15-16, 2015. Global economy, strengthened growth and job creation will be taken up at the summit in Turkey. The 2015 G-20 Turkey summit will be the tenth meeting of the G-20 heads of government. Turkey will assume the presidency of the G-20 in 2015.

What is G20?
The Group of Twenty (also known as the G-20 or G20) is an international forum for the governments and central bank governors from 20 major economies. The members, shown highlighted on the map at right, include 19 individual countries: ArgentinaAustraliaBrazilCanadaChinaFranceGermanyIndiaIndonesiaItalyJapanMexicoRussiaSaudi ArabiaSouth AfricaSouth KoreaTurkey, the United Kingdom and the United States—along with the European Union (EU). 


The G-20 was founded in 1999 with the aim of studying, reviewing, and promoting high-level discussion of policy issues pertaining to the promotion of international financial stability. It seeks to address issues that go beyond the responsibilities of any one organization. Collectively, the G-20 economies account for around 85% of the gross world product (GWP), 80% of world trade (or, if excluding EU intra-trade, 75%), and two-thirds of the world population. The G-20 heads of government or heads of state have periodically conferred at summits since their initial meeting in 2008.




Antalya will also host EXPO 2016.


Especially on behalf of Antalya area, we would like to take the opportunity of expressing our gratitude to Foreign Affairs Minister of Turkey Mr. Mevlut Cavusoglu (born in Antalya) for this event, and also more.
