PM Modi attends G20 Bali Summit 2022
India has been at the center stage of the world for many years whether it can be in terms of the global supply chain, medicine provider during corona times, or acting as a mediator between Russia & Ukraine war. The ongoing G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia will be a two-day event beginning today where the member nations will gather to attend the annual conference of the world’s major economies and India once again will be seen as one of the major centers of attraction about what will be our stand in the current global crisis of war and geopolitical developments.
The “Recover Together, Recover Stronger” motto will be the focus of the G20 Summit this year. The global crisis has been exacerbated by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, rising prices, growing debt, and the disastrous effects of climate change.
The past two summits held in Riyadh & Rome were heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the Riyadh summit was held totally virtually, the Rome summit has a lot of aftereffects of COVID & many leaders did not attend it physically. Naturally, the decision-making too was affected under such circumstances so the upcoming summit in Bali is going to be the first major summit where almost all top leaders of these countries are going to attend and discuss the strategies to move ahead in the coming times.
In the tweet from PM Modi’s official handle, he said “During the Bali summit, I will have extensive discussions with other G20 leaders on key issues of global concern, such as reviving global growth, food and energy security, environment, health and digital transformation,” which indicates that the agenda is clearly the growth and the global stability on our agenda.
Below are some agenda of the summit:
- Governments and other interested parties will discuss how to best take advantage of the digital revolution
- Promotion of an immediate transition to cleaner, greener energy sources
- Focus on energy affordability and smart and clean energy technology.
- Examine driving MSMEs into the digital ecosystem.
Prime Minister Modi will have separate bilateral meetings with a number of leaders on the sidelines of the summit. The Bali summit will have three working sessions at the leader’s level which PM Modi will be participating. These include sessions on food and energy security, a session on digital transformation, and a session on health.
The foreign secretary said the summit is particularly special for India as it will hold the presidency of the grouping from December 1 for a one-year period, and the presidency handover will take place during the summit in Bali.
