At the recent G20 Antalya Summit, the Leaders of the G20 made a historic call on business, government and civil society to commit to the uptake of inclusive business models as a means to end poverty.

Specifically, the Leaders’ stated in their Summit wide Communique that:

The private sector has a strong role to play in development and poverty eradication. Through our G20 Call on Inclusive Business we stress the need of all stakeholders to work together in order to promote opportunities for low income people and communities to participate in markets as buyers, suppliers and consumers

Going beyond the Communique, the Leaders formerly endorsed the G20 Leaders’ Call on Inclusive Business, the G20 Inclusive Business Framework and called for the establishment of the G20 Global Platform on Inclusive Business.

Business for Development is encouraged to see the prominence being given to inclusive business at the G20 and was delighted to provide assistance and advice to the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on its response to the proposed framework.
