INDIA’S G20 PRESIDENCY: A SYNOPSIS

The New Delhi G20 Leaders’ Summit held on 9-10 September 202 brought the deliberations under our G20 Presidency to an successful culmination. With G20 including all P5 countries, and accounting for 85% of global GDP, 75% of world trade and 2/3rd of world population, it was the highest profile international gathering in the history of independent India.

The theme of our G20 Presidency “One Earth, One Family, One Future”, drawing upon our age-old belief of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, was endorsed by all. With over 200 meetings in 60 Indian cities in all our 28 States and 8 UTs, across 40 different mechanisms including Sherpa and Finance Track Working Groups, as well as Engagement Groups, the size, scale and scope of India’s G20 Presidency was unprecedented.

The substantive centrepiece of the G20 Summit was the New Delhi G20 Leaders’ Declaration (NDLD), adopted unanimously by all G20 countries on the first day of the Summit. An action-oriented, decisive, inclusive and ambitious Declaration, it sets out the way forward on a wide range of prevailing global challenges. It is a historic milestone in India’s journey to assume its rightful place in the comity of nations.

The NDLD reflects a uniquely Indian perspective of emphasizing universal, equitable and inclusive solutions to today’s problems. It sends out a message for peace, dialogue, diplomacy and hope highlighting Prime Minister’s clarion call that “Today’s era must not be of war”. Through it, India has successfully highlighted ideas, especially home- grown ideas, and shaped global narratives and bridged divides. ( Information G20 India )
