The G20 (or Group of Twenty) is an international forum for the governments and central bank governors from 19 countries and the European Union. Founded in 1999 with the aim to discuss policy pertaining to the promotion of international financial stability, the G20 has expanded its agenda since 2008 and heads of government or heads of state, as well as finance ministers and foreign ministers, have periodically conferred at summits ever since. It seeks to address issues that go beyond the responsibilities of any one organization.

Leo is a second year International Business student here in Maastricht University. Born in Malaysia to a German father and Malaysian mother, he likes to refer to himself as a German with a bit of “spice”. Having participated in G20 committee during EuroMUN 2018, he knows exactly what challenges and especially opportunities delegates will have to face in CBA committees, and is a huge fan of the idea. Apart from loving music, he is also a massive Star Wars and Lord of the Rings fan, so any delegates willing to throw in a few fun puns or references will have his undying respect!
