The G20 Sherpa meeting in the 2022 G20 Indonesia Presidency was held for the 3rd time and was held in the Special Region of Yogyakarta Province on 27-29 September 2022. The G20 Sherpa meeting was held at a time when the world was still in a geopolitical atmosphere overshadowed by uncertainty, so many political dynamics that will more or less affect the course of various discussions at the Sherpa meeting.

Indonesia expresses its appreciation and gratitude for the support of all delegates in all meetings at various levels, both at the level of Working Groups, Engagement Groups, to Ministerial Level Meetings, to produce a more concrete outcome document. The journey of the Indonesian G20 Presidency will reach its final destination with the ratification of the Leaders' Declaration by Heads of State/Heads of Government at the G20 Summit in November 2022 in Bali.

Co-Sherpa G20 Indonesia Edi Prio Pambudi emphasized that the goals to be achieved are common goals, and not individual goals or specific countries.

I am sure the upcoming discussions will be quite challenging, but our progress has been significant to move further towards the summit in November," said Co-Sherpa Edi Pambudi who is also the Deputy for International Economic Cooperation at the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs.

Co-Sherpa Edi Pambudi revealed that now is a very crucial moment in this year's G20 Presidency, especially during the discussion of the Leaders' Declaration draft, therefore essence and efficiency are the keys. "Speaking from an economic perspective, when a crisis occurs and we see there are weaknesses in the existing system, we have to try and fix them," added Co-Sherpa Edi Pambudi.

“Moreover, through declarations from our Leaders, let us give hope to the most vulnerable and needy among us. We can further demonstrate the G20's real contribution to economic recovery through tangible results, especially for developing countries," continued Co-Sherpa Edi Pambudi.

On the same occasion, Secretary of the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs Susiwijono Moegiarso was also present at the opening session.
