The 2019 G20 Summit discussed eight themes to Ensure Global Sustainable Development.[7] The eight themes were "Global Economy", "Trade and Investment", "Innovation", "Environment and Energy", "Employment", "Women's empowerment", "Development" and "Health".[8]

Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China has issued a statement considering the Hong Kong Protests as China’s internal affairs on 24 June. The Chinese government wanted to delist the Hong Kong issue from the summit’s agenda for the year, to avoid possible political and security confrontations between all G20 leaders (from outside China) and China. China has threatened to attack G20 nations suspected for “wrongfully” accusing China.[9] However, Japanese Prime Minister Abe had raised the issue to President Xi just before the official summit, while some Hong Kong citizens protested in places around the summit venue. Pro-independence leader Chan Ho-tin demonstrated with people from Chinese ethnic minorities like Rebiya Kadeer for Hong Kong, as well as Xinjiang issues.[10]
