Next stop Brisbane for the G20's development agenda

The G20's Development Working Group (DWG) concluded its final meeting of the year on 5 September in Perth, agreeing on new actions to support growth and resilience.

Strengthening global development is central to the G20's objectives.

DWG co-chair Clare Walsh said Australia had championed a range of practical outcomes for developing countries this year.

"Our work to reduce the cost of transferring remittances is just one practical example of where collective G20 effort can make a big difference to the poorest and most vulnerable. While much work remains, the global average cost of transferring remittances has never been lower."
