G20 Statement Update on March Meetings
Saudi G20 Presidency
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, March 13, 2020
The Saudi G20 Presidency will continue to convene, foster, support and coordinate international efforts to counter the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, both in human and economic terms.
The Saudi G20 Presidency has taken necessary precautionary measures for all meetings through to the end of March whilst ensuring important discussions continue to take place and efforts are focused on the global response to COVID-19.
The G20 is implementing new arrangements for scheduled meetings through to the end of March. Some meetings will be postponed, and some will be held virtually. Specific details will be available on www.g20.org.
The G20 is working closely with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Saudi Ministry of Health given the rapidly changing circumstances around COVID-19, including elevated travel restrictions, and will continue to evaluate the status of meetings. Updates will be provided on www.g20.org as details are finalized.
Our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our guests but the G20 has always tackled the major issues of the day and the need for international cooperation in meeting global challenges has indeed been emphasized by this pandemic.
