Hamburg will host the twelfth G20 Summit on the 7th and 8th of July, 2017. More than twenty Heads of State or Government as well as representatives of international organisations will meet at the Messehallen Convention Centre.
A major trade hub, Hamburg boasts Europe's third-largest port, cutting-edge architecture, a cosmopolitan atmosphere and a history of international relations.
Germany took over the G20 Presidency from China on 1 December 2016. The 19 leading industrialised countries and emerging economies and the EU account for almost two‑thirds of the world population, more than four‑fifths of gross world product and three‑quarters of world trade.
True to its motto “Shaping an interconnected world”, the German G20 Presidency is setting three priorities: building resilience, improving sustainability, assuming responsibility.
