The G20 (Group of 20, also variously G21, G22 and G20+) is a bloc of developing nationss which emerged at the 5th Ministerial WTO conference, held in Cancún, Mexico from 10 September to 14 September 2003. In trade negotiations, the group has pressed for rich countries to end subsidies to their farmers and opposed liberalisation of their own agricultural sectors.

The exact number of countries in the loose alliance has varied somewhat, hence the various changes in name, but the group has included: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey and Venezuela.

The G-20 (Group of 20) is also a group consisting of 19 of the world's richest nations, together with the European Union: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi-Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.
