Trade highlights, honouring commitments to climate change, and implementation of a strong and sustainable growth framework -- Director of the Global Economy Program at CIGI Domenico Lombardi highlights key messaging from the final communiqué at the G20 Leaders' Summit in St. Petersburg, Russia. He notes that commitments to raise the rate of potential growth and a push for fiscal sustainability were also seen from leaders. Finally, Lombardi comments that the exchange of tax related data is one of the more technical but solid commitments to come out of the summit, particularly given the tight time frame that was agreed upon.
