The Y20 youth summit of the G20 opens at the Lenexpo Exhibition Complex in St. Petersburg on Tuesday on the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum's floor.

The Y20 targets a constructive dialogue between G20 youth and leaders on the ideas and proposals deemed as the most promising and innovative by the younger generation for solving global economic and international development problems, summit organizers told Interfax.

The G20 Russian chair has offered the young leaders to choose the items, which they considered topical, and make proposals based on the primary themes of the Russian chairmanship's agenda.

These include a reform of international financial organizations, capital market and legislative regulation of the financial sector, recommendations on state debt management, financial awareness and involvement of the population, energy efficiency, infrastructural projects, social policy optimization, food security and environmental protection.

A communique, the appeal to G20 leaders, will have a preamble and eight theme blocks of recommendations covering all areas of the delegates' activity. The document will be presented at a meeting with Russian G20 Sherpa Ksenia Yudaeva on June 20, 2013.

The organizers said 106 young delegates from G20 member countries and six special guests of the Russian chair - Brunei, Spain, Kazakhstan, Senegal, Singapore and Ethiopia - will convene in Lenexpo.

The summit will end on June 21. It will be the final event of the Russian G20 chairmanship.
