As India assumes the G20 presidency, we on India News Manch hosted Amitabh Kant, G20 Sherpa, Government of India Official today at Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi.

While speaking about the importance of G20, Amitabh Kant stated “G20 is an important forum because its member states account for 85% of the world’s GDP as well as 78% of global trade. Additionally, 90% of the patents filed in the world come from G20 nations. Till now, we’ve been reacting to the global agenda set by developed countries, and this is the first opportunity where India will get to bring its priorities for the world to react to it.”

Adding further, he stated that India has planned 215 meetings, across 56 cities in all States and Union Territories.

“We have an opportunity to transform these cities. We can bring a big change to the development of these cities, starting with Bangalore, Udaipur and Mumbai whose infrastructure was improved upon by their respective state governments” he added.

Amitabh Kant said “States will also get an opportunity to showcase their culture and cuisine as we will be displaying and gifting handicrafts to delegates in order to develop India and all States as global brands.”

He further stated that handicrafts and travel tourism markets are huge and India has just a 2% share, and need to utilise these opportunities to develop India’s image as a leader in these fields.
