Steering Committee

GGF is supported by a steering committee made up of international senior policymakers, academics and private sector representatives from the five participating countries – China, Germany, India, Japan and the United States.

Members of the steering committee make the final selection of GGF fellows. The committee assists GGF by providing feedback on the overall program as well as concrete input on the policy areas covered. During the working group sessions, members of the steering committee support the fellows by joining the discussions and sharing their expertise.
