G20 - 2014
On 11 July 2012, the Prime Minister announced that the Group of 20 (G20) leaders’ summit will be held in Brisbane, Queensland, on 15 and 16 November 2014 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The G20 is the premier forum for international economic cooperation and decision making among the major economies of the world with members from 19 countries and the European Union. G20 leaders, finance ministers and central bank governors meet regularly to address global economic and financial challenges and cooperate on economic and financial reform.
The G20 works to strengthen the global economy, reform international financial institutions, improve financial regulation, and discuss the key economic reforms that are needed in each of the member countries. In 2012, the G20 has focused on measures to support financial stability and global economic growth, with a strong emphasis on improving employment prospects and promoting trade.
Hosting the G20 in 2014 will be a unique opportunity for Australia to influence the global economic agenda, as well as an opportunity to strengthen our engagement with the leaders of the world’s major economies.The G20 will be attended by up to 4,000 delegates and up to 2,500 domestic and international media representatives.
A G20 Taskforce has been established in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to coordinate the whole of government policy agenda, and to manage the operations and security for the conduct of the meetings.
The G20 Taskforce will be seeking staff to undertake non-ongoing positions within the Australian Public Service. Some positions in the Operations Division may be required to relocate interstate to Brisbane in 2013. Positions will be advertised at careers.dpmc.gov.au and/or www.apsjobs.gov.au when available.
