The G20 summit, with the motto “Recover Together, Recover Stronger,” will bring together leaders from 20 nations, accounting for over 85% of the global GDP and about two-thirds of the world’s population. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will travel to Bali, Indonesia, today to attend the conference.

The Prime Minister will inform the world leaders on India’s changing G20 priorities during his visit and engage in bilateral discussions with them. In addition, this G20 summit is significant since it will serve as the transition point for India’s one-year presidency, which it will assume on December 1, 2022.

“At the closing session of the Summit, President Widodo will symbolically hand over the G20 Presidency to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. India will formally assume the G20 Presidency from 1 December 2022,” read the official press release by the Prime Minister’s Office.

“India’s G20 presidency is coming at a time of crisis and chaos in the world. The world is going through the after-effects of a disruptive once-in-a-century pandemic, conflicts and a lot of economic uncertainty. The symbol of the lotus in the G20 logo is a representation of hope in these times,” PM Modi said at the launch of India’s G20 logo last week.

The world leaders will undertake discussions during the summit on crucial problems of current importance, such as the global economy, energy, environment, agriculture, health, and digital transformation, among others.

PM Modi will take part in three working sessions for leaders at the Bali Summit, which is scheduled for November 15–16. These include talks on the security of food and energy, as well as workshops on digital transformation and health.

On November 16, leaders from the G20 Summit will visit Bali’s Taman Hutan Raya, better known as Bahasa Indonesia, a mangrove forest.

At the Indian community reception on November 15, PM Modi will also speak to and engage with members of the Indian community and friends of India and Bali.
