The logo, theme, and website for India’s G20 presidency will be unveiled on Tuesday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
On Monday, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) announced that the G20 presidency presents India with an unprecedented opportunity to contribute to the global agenda on pressing issues of international concern.
The logo, theme, and website for India’s G20 presidency will reflect the country’s “message and overarching priorities.”
From December 1, India will assume the presidency of the powerful grouping from its current chair, Indonesia. The G20 is an intergovernmental forum representing the world’s major developed and developing economies. The group includes Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union.
According to the MEA, the Prime Minister will unveil the logo, theme, and website of India’s G20 presidency via video conference on November 8 at 4.30 p.m. Modi will be among the top leaders attending the G20 summit in Bali on November 15-16.
According to the MEA, “Indian foreign policy has evolved to take on leadership roles on the global stage, guided by the vision of the Prime Minister.”
Taking a significant step in this direction, India will assume the presidency of the G20 on December 1. As the G20 presidency, India has a unique opportunity to contribute to the global agenda on pressing international issues,” the statement concluded.
Approximately 85 percent of the global GDP, more than 75 percent of the worldwide trade, and about two-thirds of the global population are represented in the G20.
In a statement, the MEA stated that India would hold 200 meetings during its G20 presidency in 32 different sectors at multiple locations across the country.
