Heads of State and Government Meeting

Heads of State and Government Meeting

To take stock and consider bold choices that now need to be made to secure our common future, Canada, Jamaica and the Secretary-General are convening a follow-up Meeting of Heads of State and Government on September 29th, 2020. The overall objective of the meeting is to consider the menu of policy options developed over the last four months with the ambition of supporting Member States in responding and recovering from the current global crisis.

Following opening remarks by the Prime Ministers of Canada and Jamaica, and the United Nations Secretary-General, the work of the six Discussion Groups and outcomes of the High-Level Meeting of Finance Ministers will be presented. Heads of State and Government and High-Level speakers from international financial institutions and partners will intervene. The meeting will conclude with closing remarks from the co-conveners.

The ambition and partnership embedded in this effort will feed into and mobilize action at high-level meetings such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund annual meetings and the G20 Leaders’ Summit, in October and November, respectively.
