Prime minister Narendra Modi has expressed confidence that the New Delhi G20 Summit will chart a new path in the human-centric and inclusive development. He emphasized that India’s G20 Presidency has been inclusive, ambitious, decisive, and action-oriented where the developmental concerns of the Global South have been actively voiced.
“India is delighted to host the 18th G20 Summit on 09-10 September 2023 at New Delhi’s iconic Bharat Mandapam. This is the first ever G20 Summit being hosted by India. I look forward to productive discussions with world leaders over the next two days,” he said in a message on X on Friday. “It is my firm belief that the New Delhi G20 Summit will chart a new path in the human-centric and inclusive development.”
The PM highlighted the importance of emulating Gandhi-ji’s mission of serving the underprivileged, and underlined that India places great emphasis on a human-centric way of furthering progress.
He said that he will be chairing Sessions on ‘One Earth’, ‘One Family’ and ‘One Future’, covering a range of issues of prime concern to the world community including furthering strong, sustainable, inclusive and balanced growth. He also mentioned holding bilateral meetings with several leaders and Heads of Delegation to further deepen the bonds of friendship and cooperation.
Modi further added that the president will host a dinner for the leaders on Saturday. The leaders will pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat on Sunday. At the Closing Ceremony, on the same day, the G20 leaders will share their collective vision for a sustainable and equitable ‘One Future’, together like ‘One Family’, for a healthier ‘One Earth’.
In a X post, Modi said he’d be having bilateral meetings with Mauritius PM Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina and US President Joe Biden at his residence in New Delhi Friday evening.
Modi also said that these meetings will give an opportunity to review India's bilateral ties with these nations and further strengthen developmental cooperation.
