In 2019, 1,600 participants from various sectors and 120 countries have registered for the summit, met with 221 speakers and participated in over 60 sessions. The summit aimed to provide policy recommendations on major Group of Twenty (G20) issues and thereby served as a stepping stone to the Japanese Think20 (T20) Summit in May 2019 and the Japanese G20 Summit in June 2019. The Global Solutions Summit 2019 was a Think20 Japan associated event.

The Global Solutions Summit 2019 focused on the priorities of the Japanese G20 Presidency, including policy recommendations on sustainable development, infrastructure finance, financial architecture, trade and investment, climate change, future of work and education, social cohesion and the future of politics, SME policy, policies for aging populations, and more.

All discussions linked to the overarching narrative of recoupling economic, environmental and social progress. We furthermore highlighted all relevant issues for the future of multilateralism and strengthened the implementation site in our discussions.
