PM Lee to attend G-20 Summit in India

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong will go to the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in New Delhi from Friday to Sunday, where he will participate in conversations on world problems like sustainable growth, climate transformation and food safety. He will be a part of the yearly forum at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on behalf of India, which governs the rotating G-20 presidency for 2023.

PM Lee will take part in conversations on the requirements of policy-based multilateralism, digital public infrastructure, health, energy transitions and sustainable growth at the gathering themed “One Earth, One Family, One Future”. Researchers have analysed that divided advice over Russia’s war in Ukraine, as well as India-China border stress, will overshadow the summit and create hindrance for the G-20 governers to reach a agreement announcement.

Neither Chinese President Xi Jinping nor his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin will be a part of the attendance. Discovered in 1999 as a forum to confront economic problems, the G-20 holds 19 prominent and approaching economies and the European Union, which together create around 85 per cent of global gross domestic product and two-thirds of the globe’s population. It wants to discover solutions to some of the world’s pressing issues, like rising inflation and economic problems after the Covid-19 pandemic hit this world in a horrible way, and funding for developed nations to reach their clean energy goals.
