With India formally assuming the chairmanship of the G20 from Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in an article on the occasion that the country will work to promote the universal spirit of unity. India will chair the G20 from December 1, 2022 to November 30, 2023. In his article, Prime Minister Modi said, the last 17 G20 presidency countries gave many other important results including ensuring macro-economic stability, rationalizing international taxation, giving relief from debt-burden on countries.
It was further stated that, we will benefit from these achievements and further build upon them. India sees all living beings and even inanimate things as being made up of the same five basic elements, which include the five elements of earth, water, fire, air and space. The Prime Minister said, during our G20 presidency, we will present India’s experiences, learnings and models to other countries. Our G20 priorities will be shaped in consultation with G20 partners, whose voices are often unheard.
Our priorities will center on healing our One Earth, creating harmony within our One Family and giving hope to our One Future. To heal our planet, we will encourage sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyles based on India’s tradition of trusteeship towards nature, he said in his article.
It was further told in the article that, among the biggest challenges we are facing today, climate change, terrorism and epidemics cannot be solved by fighting each other, but by working together. Fortunately, today’s technology also gives us the means to solve problems on a humanity-wide scale.
The Prime Minister further said, with one of the oldest known traditions of collective decision making, India contributes to the fundamental DNA of democracy. As the mother of democracy, India’s national consensus has been forged not by diktat, but by millions of independent voices coming together in one harmonious voice. For all these reasons, India’s experience can provide insight into possible global solutions.
The G20 is the premier forum for international economic cooperation, representing approximately 85 percent of global GDP, more than 75 percent of global trade, and nearly two-thirds of the world’s population. During its G20 chairmanship, India will hold around 200 meetings in 32 different regions at multiple locations across India. The G20 summit, to be held next year, will be one of the highest profile international gatherings hosted by India.
