The idea was to provide a platform for anyone interested in global economic affairs to discuss the problems of the international economic system and offer solutions for improving it.

The hope was that significantly expanding the number of those seeking solutions to the global economic problems would lead to ideas that policy-makers around the world had overlooked.

Since it started, G-Global has brought together thousands of experts and members of the public from around 150 countries.
