Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
As you read this,’s home city, Brisbane, is preparing to host the G20 Summit, a gathering of the leading global economies.
It is expected that the world leaders will be focused on economic recovery and growth, with some attention to infrastructure development, multilateral trade and international tax compliance.
While no-one is holding their breath for sweeping measures or global consensus, we all agree that it’s better to be talking than doing nothing.
We wish all the delegates well and hope that their discussions are fruitful.
