PM Modi to take over India’s G20 Presidency in Bali


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting Bali from November 14-16 to attend the 17th G20 Summit where he will formally take over India‘s G20 Presidency.

During the Bali Summit, G20 leaders will deliberate extensively upon key issues of global concern under the Summit theme of ‘Recover Together, Recover Stronger’. Three working sessions will be held as part of the G20 Summit Agenda – food and energy security; health; and digital transformation, according to a MEA statement issued on Thursday.

At the closing session of the Summit, Indonesian President Joko Widodo will symbolically hand over the G20 Presidency to Modi. India will formally assume the G20 Presidency from December 1.

On the sidelines of the Summit, the Prime Minister will hold bilateral meetings with some of his counterparts including President Widodo. The Prime Minister will also address and interact with the Indian community in Bali.

Indonesia is striving hard to arrive at the Joint Communique at the Summit that is being held in the backdrop of the Ukraine war. In the run up to the Summit Indonesia has strived hard to reach a middle ground amid sharp differences between the West and Russia. However, Jakarta stood its ground and went ahead to invite Russia for the Summit, notwithstanding pressure from the West. Meanwhile, Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar will visit Cambodia from November 11-13 to attend the 19th ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit on Saturday and the 17th East Asia Summit.

He will also visit Siem Reap to review the preservation and restoration work being undertaken by India at Cambodian heritage sites.Dhankhar will also have a bilateral meeting with the Prime Minister of Cambodia and other leaders including Vietnamese PM.
