Due to India's upcoming chairmanship of the G20 beginning on December 1, 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present at the summit from November 14–16 in Bali.

In an interview with the media agency on Sunday, Manoj Kumar Bharti, the Indian ambassador to Indonesia, stated, “The prime minister visit is short but it’s extremely significant visit here in Bali for the G20 conference. The 17th G20 Summit is where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will formally assume leadership of the G20 for India in 2023.

According to the Indian envoy, “PM Modi’s coming to G20 is important because India is about to take the G20 Presidency from Indonesia. As far as Indonesia’s Presidency is concerned, India has continuously provided assistance to Indonesia, and the Indonesian government also acknowledges India’s cooperation.

“The Indian Prime Minister’s participation in this summit is significant in that it gives our presidency a great opportunity to introduce itself to all world leaders on the day before the appointment. The Prime Minister of India also launched our presidency’s website and logo on the day before the appointment. Tell them about India’s success tales “said the Indian representative in Bali in an interview.

The prime minister’s vision has guided India’s foreign policy as it has evolved to take on leadership positions on the international arena. India will take over the G20 Presidency on December 1, 2022, marking a significant stride in this direction.

The brilliant hues of India’s national flag—saffron, white, green, and blue—were the inspiration for PM Modi’s G20 logo. According to an official statement, it contrasts Earth with the lotus, India’s national flower that symbolises progress over obstacles.

The Earth, according to the official statement, is a wonderful reflection of India’s pro-planet philosophy of living in peace with the environment. “Bharat” is inscribed in Devanagari script underneath the G20 logo.

“Indonesia’s G20 chairmanship will be replaced by India’s. Throughout the entirety of last year, India provided complete cooperation and assistance to Indonesia’s president “Bharti stated.

“The Maha Upanishad, a prehistoric Sanskrit scripture, serves as the inspiration for the “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or “One Earth, One Family, One Future” that serves as the subject of India’s G20 Presidency. The topic essentially recognises the worth of all life, including human, animal, plant, and microbial, as well as their interdependence on the planet Earth and across the cosmos “the official statement, read.

The topic also emphasises LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment), with its related ecologically sound and responsible decisions made at the level of both individual lives and national development, leading to globally transformational activities that result in a cleaner, greener, and bluer future.

India will bring up the topics of renewable energy and the digital transformation during the G20 Summit.

“India is advancing the key policy directives of Indonesia’s president, including those on digital transformation, renewable energy security, and health. However, our Prime Minister will also have a very excellent and suitable opportunity to inform world leaders about the primary issue of India’s presidency, “Manoj Bharti, the ambassador, said the media agency.

Even while there has been talk in the diplomatic community that Prime Minister Modi will likely meet with Britain’s new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak at the G20 conference, the Indian side has not yet confirmed this. Bharti also stated that PM Modi will attend bilateral discussions with international leaders.

Additionally, the Prime Minister will speak to and engage with Bali’s Indian population.
