Lords to question former Treasury minister ahead of G20 Summit
The House of Lords International Relations Committee will hear from former Commercial Secretary to the Treasury on Wednesday 5 June, ahead of the 2019 G20 Summit from 28-29 June.
Giving evidence to the Committee in Room 4 at 11:15am will be:
- Lord O'Neill of Gatley, Chairman, Chatham House, former Commercial Secretary to the Treasury (2015-16), and former Chief Economist, Goldman Sachs
Questions are likely to include:
- How important a role has the G20 played in global economic governance, and to what extent does it remain fit for purpose?
- How would you characterise the state of the global economy?
- To what extent is the threat of a ‘trade war' between the United States and China now a reality, and how will it affect the forthcoming G20 Summit?
