The G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors Meeting in Fukuoka (G20 Fukuoka) will be held on June 8 (Sat.) and 9 (Sun.), 2019. Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors from over 20 countries as well as representatives of international organizations will discuss important global economic themes at these high-level meetings. Held amid waves of innovation in the world of finance, the world’s eyes will be on Fukuoka City. As the city continues to establish itself as a base for startup companies, the hosting of these meetings becomes particularly meaningful. With this in mind, the city named the week before the summit “G20 Week” and will hold a FinTech event, one of the themes of the G20 meetings. This will not only generate more attention for G20 Fukuoka but will also create opportunities to promote Fukuoka City’s startup movements.
