Today, inclusive and comprehensive dialogue in leading multilateral institutions, such as the Group of Twenty (G20) and its engagement groups, is becoming increasingly important. The key one is the Business 20 (B20) which develops recommendations for the G20 leaders. In 2023, the Indian B20 Presidency focuses on the development of responsible, dynamic, innovative, sustainable and fair business (Responsible, Accelerated, Innovative, Sustainable and Equitable Businesses, R.A.I.S.E.). What should be effective steps to overcome the current challenges and contradictions in the global economy? What should be the basis for cooperation between the state and business in overcoming existing gaps and ensuring sustainable development? What should be the purposes and objectives of improving the effectiveness of the system of international multilateral cooperation?
