This was an opportunity for African policymakers to share their views on how the G20 can tackle the continent’s concerns.

On 15 February 2018, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) and UK Government funded Global Economic Governance (GEG) Africa programme co-hosted a G20 Dialogue Forum with Ambassador Pedro Villagra Delgado, Argentina's Sherpa to the G20. The forum was led by Ambassador Anil Sooklal, South Africa’s Sherpa to the G20.

The objective of the dialogue was to provide a platform for Ambassador Delgado to engage with a broad range of stakeholders, to include representatives from relevant South African government departments, the High Commissioner of Rwanda as chair of the African Union (AU), a representative from the Embassy of Senegal as chair of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), African ambassadors and ambassadors of countries to the G20; as well as representatives from business, youth, labour, think tanks and academia. The dialogue provided an opportunity for African policymakers and representatives to engage directly with Ambassador Delgado and other G20 countries, to convey their views on how the G20 can best address priority issues and concerns of the continent; and to reinforce common messages from an African perspective, thereby contributing to efforts aimed towards ensuring a stronger African voice in G20 debates.
