During an early April meeting in Nanjing, China, the G20 officially launched the Global Platform on Inclusive Business (GPIB). The Platform is a global partnership that will provide support to policymakers and accelerate the adoption of inclusive business policies and programs globally.
The GPIB is being implemented under the Chinese 2016 G20 Presidency. The creation of the Platform was called for in the Leaders Call on Inclusive Business issued at the G20 Leaders Summit in November 2015 in Ankara, Turkey. During the Summit, leaders also endorsed the G20 Inclusive Business Framework. The GPIB will connect policymakers and businesses to better understand the role that governments can play in supporting inclusive companies more effectively.
