DATE 2021-12-30



Indonesia officially assumed 2022 G20 presidency from Italy. Prior to the closing ceremony of G20 Summit on October 31, Mario Draghi, Prime Minister of Italy, delivered a hammer to Joko Jokowi Widodo, President of Indonesia, as a symbolic handover of G20 presidency from Italy to Indonesia. For the first time since G20 was established in 1999, Indonesia will be in charge of the G20 presidency starting from 1 December 2021 to 30 November 2022.


During the handover ceremony, President Jokowi said Indonesian Presidency will adopt the theme “Recover Together, Recover Stronger” to encourage joint efforts for world economic recovery. Inclusive, people-centered, environmentally friendly, and sustainable growth is the main commitment of Indonesia as the Chair of G20 Summit, which will be held on 30-31 October 2022 in Bali, Indonesia.


As an opening of more than 150 meetings planned to take place throughout the Indonesian G20 presidency, the first G20 Sherpa Meeting was held in Jakarta, Indonesia on 7-8 December 2021. The meeting served as an opportunity for each G20 Working Group to convey their priorities. It was followed by the First Deputy of Finance and the Central Bank Meeting held in Bali on 9-10 December.


Started in 1999 as a meeting for the finance minister and central bank governors, G20 has evolved into a yearly summit involving the Head of State and Government. Indonesia’s G20 Presidency in 2022 is the third G20 presidency in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic.
