On 20–21 April 2017, the second meeting of the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors under the German G20 presidency took place on the sidelines of the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group in Washington, D.C. Building on the results of their previous meeting in the German town of Baden-Baden, the finance ministers and central bank governors discussed a range of issues, including the state of the global economy, the Framework for Growth, the Compact with Africa initiative, the international financial architecture, global financial governance, financial market regulation, green finance, financial inclusion, financial literacy in the digital age, and remittances.
The G20 representatives agreed to strengthen efforts to achieve solid, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth. With regard to the Compact with Africa initiative, the finance ministers and central bank governors welcomed the progress that has been made on the individual investment agreements, which are to be presented at the G20 conference on Africa in Berlin in June 2017. In the area of financial market regulation, the financial ministers reaffirmed their determination to ensure the complete and internationally consistent implementation and finalisation of the reform agenda that has been agreed upon.
