With Saudi Arabia holding the 2020 presidency of the G20, the T20 has hosted a series of events and webinars in the Kingdom throughout the year, ahead of the main G20 Summit in November. The participants have discussed and debated issues such as cybersecurity, web safety, climate change, environmental safety and the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
