Carlo Bonomi
President of Confindustria

Unprecedented challenges stand ahead of us, and Confindustria is committed to making business speak one voice. We call on the G20 to boost an immediate recovery and to put in motion a longsighted plan to reshape the future of our economies and of our societies. The way forward is mandatory, and it remains unchanged: a much more cohesive coordination between governments, international organizations, and stakeholders, business above all.

This conjuncture is incomparably more severe than the one that saw the genesis of the G20 in the aftermath of the last decade’s crisis.

We work for 2021 to be remembered as the beginning of a new era.
