The slogan of G20 this year is “People, Planet, Prosperity”. Restoring multilateral cooperation among states is a key idea in the fight against pandemics and climate change. This is the essence of the Italian strategy for the G20 summit. The meetings of the G20 countries were able to prove the aspiration of the world’s leading states in combating crime, respecting human rights and freedoms, spreading culture, and preserving a common heritage.
Do not forget that this is the foundation of identity, international image, the potential of the recreational industry, and a tangible financial side for the budget. The G20 decisions are the main ones in the world economy and related industries, they determine the vector of future development and movement. This group brings together more than 70% of the world’s population, 80% of world trade, and 90% of the world’s domestic national product.
The event addressed issues of economic growth, international security challenges, innovation, preservation of cultural heritage, economic recovery after the pandemic, and other important issues in international affairs.
During G20 events, as a result, the most significant problems were discussed :
* the difficulty of post-COVID recovery;
* the threat of social unrest and political extremist attacks to cultural heritage;
* The effectiveness of youth policy and cultural diplomacy for mutual understanding among peoples;
* the need for new response requirements in the digital age;
* intellectual property protection worldwide;

America will continue to support Kyiv. Ukraine needs American support now more than ever.

Glory to Ukraine.
