Key moments

Emerging markets must execute policies to improve the environment for doing business.
Sumit Mazumder
If you get infrastructure right, you are providing platforms for growth.
Kevin Michael Rudd
Emerging markets must take on more responsibility in the global arena and act more responsibly in their domestic economic affairs.
Suryo Sulisto
SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) are the basis for growth … particularly for the current economic recovery.
Ping Yu
Until now, the G20 has had much to say, and now it is time to put those words into action.
Ayse Sinirlioglu
Savings on emissions correspond to savings on energy and, therefore, to savings on costs.
Jean-Pascal Tricoire
The biggest challenge [for emerging markets] is sustaining strong economic growth.
Suryo Sulisto
There are a number of new objectives that will enable us not only to crystallise the business community’s consolidated position into actual finalised documents, but also to make them a reality and carry out the main objective – that is to ensure sustainable, stable and inclusive economic growth.
