The Government has today named Corrs Chambers Westgarth CEO and Partner John W.H. Denton as a member of the Australian B20.

The B20 works with the Government on the G20 policy agenda and serves as the key business advisory body to the international economic forum. The G20 brings together the world’s most advanced and emerging economies, representing around 85 per cent of global GDP, and has a core goal of promoting economic prosperity and creating jobs.

Corrs, the only law firm represented in this prestigious group, will work alongside leading Australian business influencers including Google, Microsoft, Wesfarmers, Boeing, Telstra, Virgin, Leighton Holdings, GE, the major banks, the ASX, Australian Industry Group and the Reserve Bank of Australia.

In 2014 Australia will host the G20, including the Leaders’ Summit in Brisbane and a Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting in Cairns.

John is one of the originating Australian members of the B20.
