PM Modi praises IMF chief for showering her appreciation to India’s art, culture
Ahead of the mega G20 event on September 9th and 10th, Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended his warm welcome to all the leaders arriving in the national capital to be a part of the G20 Summit, which will be organised at the newly inaugurated Bharat Mandapam at Delhi’s Pragati Maidan. As the PM welcomed the leaders, he took the opportunity to praise Managing Director of International Monetary Fund (IMF) Kristalina Georgieva for showing her curiosity and fondness for Indian culture as she landed in Delhi.
IMF Chairperson, Kristalina Georgieva on Friday landed at the Delhi airport to attend the summit. At Delhi’s IGI Airport, Kristalina was welcomed with a vibrant traditional folk dance performance by folk dancers on a Sambalpuri song. As she witnessed the dance, the IMF chief too joined them and attempted a few dance steps herself, while trying to imitate the dancers. She also showed her appreciation to the artists before proceeding ahead.

MD International Monetary Fund Ms. Kristalina Georgieva arrives in India for the G20 summit to a Sambalpuri song and dance welcome.”
Prime Minister Modi, later drawing a reference from the video, hailed the IMF Managing Director for showing her appreciation to India’s culture. Welcoming the Managing Director of IMF, the PM wrote on X, “Fully agree, Kristalina Georgieva. May we all work together to mitigate the pressing challenges of our time and ensure a better future for our youth. I also appreciate the affection you have shown for our culture when you arrived in Delhi.”
