The next months will be crucial for the Think20 think tank community to produce policy recommendations in view of the Italian G20 Summit in October. This series of T20-associated events (closed-door and public Roundtables) is intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the T20 by adding new voices of international experts, civil servants, and representatives of the business community. ISPI, the T20 National Coordinator and Chair, and the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) are co-hosting the T20 Associated-event “International Finance: Still Fit for a Post-Pandemic World?" in cooperation with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). This Public Event is preceded by a closed-door Workshop by invitation only (see the programme), intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the Task Force (TF) “International Finance”.

A 'check-up' is required to escape the fate of future financial crises. What kind of instruments and tools are needed to meet the expectations of developing and advanced economies alike? Which measures should be taken by the G20 and key international institutions to ensure stability and fairness of the global financial system?
