As a key international forum for global economic cooperation, the G20 brings together the finance ministers and central bank governors of the world’s 20 largest economies in Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (FMCBG) meetings. At a time of immense global economic uncertainty and geopolitical instability, the G20 has never been more important as a forum to help address the shared challenges in our region and the global economy.

Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia– in collaboration with Bank Indonesia– is pleased to organise the first Model G20 – Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting (Model G20 FMCBG Meeting). This event aims to provide a unique opportunity for the next generation of leaders in Indonesia with a platform to learn the value of G20 multilateralism and bring young talented Indonesians to experience how the G20 finance track tackles the most pressing global economic challenges and leading global collective actions towards strong, sustainable, balanced, and inclusive growth.

What is Model G20 FMCBG Meeting?

The Model G20 FMCBG Meeting is a simulation of the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting, challenging young people to take on the roles of economic policymakers. Delegates will assume as one of the G20 member countries, particularly in the finance deputies and ministerial meeting sessions, while seeking to resolve pressing issues on the G20 agenda, from monetary and fiscal policies to financial inclusion. The Model G20 FMCBG Meeting allows delegates to debate, elaborate on concrete policy actions, and work together on common solutions that will be adopted into G20 FMCBG Communiqué.
