G20 leaders met in Antalya, Turkey, on 15-16 November 2015. Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, and Jean Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, represented the EU at the summit.
The world's leading economies adopted a comprehensive agenda including the implementation of past commitments, boosting investment to drive growth and promoting inclusiveness to ensure the benefits of their actions can be shared by all.
Following the brutal terrorist attack in Paris, G20 leaders also reaffirmed the need to work together to fight terrorism. G20 leaders adopted a statement highlighting the need to address:
- the financing of terrorism
- the conditions leading to terrorism, including radicalisation and recruitment
- the threat posed by the growing flow of foreign terrorist fighters
Leaders also agreed that the scale of the ongoing refugee crisis was of global concern with major humanitarian, political, social and economic consequences. It needed a coordinated and comprehensive response to tackle both this crisis, as well as its long term consequences.
