Following the keynote speech, a break-out session on the G20 Osaka Summit was held. An introduction on the role and significance of the G20 Summit was made by a Foreign Ministry Official who is a member of the G20 Summit Office. 30 students were then split into four groups and took active part in a student-led discussion on what they think should be the priority for the G20 Osaka Summit.
The students filled a whiteboard with points from their lively exchange of opinions on possible agenda items for the G20 Summit such as environmental issues, migration and displacement issues, counterterrorism and intellectual property rights. During their debate, students raised various questions towards Ministry Officials, such as the role of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the G20 Summit, pointing out that the G20 Summit focuses on economic issues rather than foreign affairs.
