In its 75th year of independence, India’s approaching leadership of the G20 grouping is a source of pride and a fantastic opportunity, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
After revealing the logo, theme, and website for India’s G20 presidency during an online event, Modi made the comments.
On December 1, India will take over the chairmanship of the influential alliance from Indonesia, which is currently in that position.
An intergovernmental meeting of the world’s leading developed and emerging economies is known as the G20 or Group of 20.
In his remarks, Modi discussed India’s journey toward prosperity and claimed that all governments and individuals made individual contributions to moving India ahead after Independence.
Additionally, he asserted that India can demonstrate to the rest of the world how democracy can eradicate all forms of strife.
The prime minister also emphasised sustainable development while stating that environmental protection and development (Prakriti and Pragati) can coexist.
“It is a matter of pride for all Indians; it will bring greater glory for all Indians,” Modi said on India’s upcoming presidency of G20.
India’s G20 presidency logo, theme, and website all conveyed the nation’s “message and overriding priorities” to the outside world.
Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and the European Union are all members of the G20 (EU).
Modi is scheduled to attend the G20 conference, which will be held in Bali on November 15 and 16.
The G20 is the top platform for worldwide economic cooperation, encompassing over two-thirds of the world’s population, over 75% of global trade, and about 85% of the global GDP.
India is currently a member of the G20 Troika, which consists of Indonesia, Italy, and India and represents the current, past, and upcoming G20 presidencies.
