B20 Summit: Recommendations on innovation and entrepreneurship to be presented to the G20

The OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (STI) supported business leaders from G20 economies gathered for the ‘B20’ in Sydney on 16-18 July 2014, to discuss the twenty mutually reinforcing recommendations that they developed to drive global economic growth and create jobs. OECD STI supports two recommendations in particular: countries should establish a national innovation agenda and accompanying structural reforms to create jobs, and should remove barriers inhibiting entrepreneurs from starting and growing businesses. In November, business leaders will present the final B20 recommendations to Leaders at the G20 Summit in Brisbane.
