Saudi-Arabia, with its chairmanship of the G20 group, wants to focus on topics such as women, climate protection and technical progress. The Saudi G20 Presidency, which began on Sunday, was designed to create conditions “in which all people – especially women and young people – can live, work and prosper”, the kingdom said on Sunday night. Riyadh also wants to promote climate protection measures, for example to secure the supply of water and food, and to champion innovation and technical progress.

In a global comparison, the rights of women in a few countries are as limited as in Saudi Arabia. Among other things, strict dress codes apply. Some regulations have been relaxed, but women still need the approval of a male guardian for many life decisions. Several women’s rights activists were also arrested.

G20 summit will take place on 21 and 22 November 2020 in Riyadh

Saudi Arabia replaced Japan on Sunday as the leader in the group of leading economies representing two-thirds of the world’s population and 85 percent of global economic output. The arch-conservative kingdom is after the assassination of anti-government journalist Jamal Khashoggi and because of the human rights situation and participation in the war in Yemen in the criticism.

“Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, promised concrete measures to prepare the group of countries for the challenges of the future”

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, promised “concrete measures” to prepare the group of countries for the “challenges of the future”. With its location between Asia, Africa and Europe, Saudi Arabia plays a special role. “This will be a special opportunity to build consensus on international issues while welcoming the world to the Kingdom”, Bin Salman said.

The next G20 summit will take place on 21 and 22 November 2020 in the capital Riyadh. It is the first summit meeting of the G20 group in the Arab world. The G20 includes the European Union and 19 leading economies.
