During Brazil’s 2019 chairship, the five BRICS countries were clear about their intentions to make cooperation more inclusive by supporting the spirit of cooperation among business, scholars, media and civil society organisations, as well as building upon government interactions. Brazil, under the theme of the summit 'BRICS: Economic Growth for an Innovative Future', aimed to promote deliverables that would have a direct impact on lives of societies and to emphasise and maximise what BRICS means to all people; while emphasising the equal role and participation of the BRICS countries.

Argentina chaired the G20 presidency under the theme Building Consensus for Fair and Sustainable Development. Emphasizing fair and sustainable growth as a pillar of development, three priorities were central under Argentina’s presidency: the future of work, infrastructure for development, and a sustainable food future. On the back of an ambitious domestic agenda, Argentina’s calendar has certainly been a loaded one, hosting 84 working group meetings, 48 Sherpa meetings, 28 finance meetings, and 7 engagement group meetings culminating with the Leaders’ Summit. Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri was also keen to utilise the G20 platform to advance the interests of the Latin American and Caribbean region and the Global South more broadly.

Argentina’s hosting of the G20 summit in 2018 presents a significant opportunity for it to represent the needs and expectations of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) as a whole, as well as advancing a cohesive regional strategy of the Latin American bloc within the G20 (Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico). Historically, Latin American regional priorities have often been marginalised in G20 debates as a result of the failure of the Latin American bloc to present a well-articulated, cohesive position on key issues on the G20 agenda.
