New Delhi is all set to host the 18th G20 Leaders Summit from September 8 to 10, welcoming over 25 world leaders and various delegates at the Pragati Maidan venue. On Saturday, the global leaders will convene at Bharat Mandapam in New Delhi, where they will join Prime Minister Modi for a welcome photo session between 9:30 AM and 10:30 AM. Following the photo session, there will be the first session, followed by a working lunch and bilateral meetings scheduled from 10:30 AM to 3 PM. The second session is slated to take place from 3 PM to 4:45 PM. A dinner event for the leaders and heads of delegations will commence from 7 PM onward.
During the meetings, leaders are expected to discuss a range of issues, including complex global challenges such as concerns of the Global South, gloomy economic scenarios, and fostering inclusive growth amid a fragmented geopolitical environment. India has also put forth its own agenda at the summit, such as digital public infrastructure, climate finance, sustainable development and clean energy, reported PTI.
During the summit other than leaders of the G20 grouping, chiefs of many leading world bodies like the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have also come to Delhi.
US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, in a tweet on Thursday, said, “I am glad to be in India for the G20 Leaders’ Summit, where we will focus on taking action to strengthen the global economy and support low and middle-income countries. The MDBs, particularly the World Bank, are critical to addressing global challenges like climate change, pandemics, and fragility and conflict. The progress we make on these issues is integral to reducing poverty and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.”
