The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced that he will travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit from November 29 to December 1.
This is the fourth time Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, and the Minister of Finance, Bill Morneau, will accompany the Prime Minister to the Summit.
The Summit brings together leaders of major advanced and emerging economies to address pressing global challenges.
As the 2018 G7 President, Canada has brought countries together to create good, middle class jobs, invest in economic growth that benefits everyone, advance gender equality and women’s economic empowerment, fight climate change, protect our oceans, and promote clean energy. At the G20 Summit, the Prime Minister will continue to champion these pressing issues, and ensure G20 countries build on progress made at the G7 Summit.
During the Summit, world leaders will discuss ways to achieve fair and sustainable development, and deliver economic growth that leaves no one behind. They will also focus on how best to prepare people for the future of work, ensure a sustainable food future, and advance infrastructure projects that strengthen communities around the world.
“No matter where we live, our fortunes are in some way tied together. So are the challenges we face. I look forward to joining fellow G20 leaders in Buenos Aires to build on the progress made at G7 to fight climate change, advance gender equality, and strengthen the middle class and offer real help to people working hard to join it.”
— The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
