Leaders at the G20 summit are expected to commit to reducing the time needed to develop COVID-19 vaccines. A draft statement says they support cutting the time from 300 days to 100.

Proposals to achieve the goal include cooperation on trials and involving regulators more closely at an earlier stage.
