The G-20 Study Group Meeting hosted the Turkish Ambassador to South Africa His Excellency Mr Kaan Esener and Mr Ussal Şahbaz and Ms Feride İnan of the Economic Policy Research Foundation of Turkey (TEPAV). TEPAV is the current Chair of Turkey’s Think-20 initiative, a G-20 think tank initiative. The study group meeting discussed Turkey’s perspectives and priorities during the country’s G-20 presidency. Discussants from South Africa and the region will explore whether, and to what extent, these priorities resonate on the African continent, and specifically for Least Developed Countries. SAIIA also presented research findings on the G-20’s Development Working Group at this event.
