DEFINITION of 'Group Of 24 - G-24'

Twenty-four countries established in 1971 to work together to coordinate the positions of developing countries on international monetary and development finance issues and to ensure that their interests were adequately represented in negotiations on international monetary matters. G-24 is a chapter of the Group of 77 (G-77), the largest intergovernmental group of developing states in the United Nations.



BREAKING DOWN 'Group Of 24 - G-24'
