Leaders of the Group of 20 major economies will be meeting in Hamburg, Germany later this week.


The G20 countries account for more than four-fifths of Gross world product and three-quarters of global trade. They are home to almost two-thirds of the world's population. In that context expectations are always high from a G20 summit.

In the last G20 summit in 2016 in China, PM Modi highlighted the issue of Countering corruption, black money and ensuring sustainable growth through collaborative action. There he laid stress on a stable global economic and financial system to ensure growth.

In the 2015 summit in Antalya (Turkey) PM Modi proposed a 7-point agenda on climate change which including increase the share of traffic on public transportation in cities by 30% by 2030.

In 2014 in Brisbane summit, Prime Minister Modi made a strong pitch for repatriation of black money. The Brisbane Action Plan mentioned India by name and paid a rich tribute to emerging markets as growing strongly.

Earlier this year, India organized two-day G20 Framework Working Group Meeting in Varanasi; officials from than 30 countries met to discuss growth strategy to raise the world GDP by 2 percent till 2018 . Diplomats have lauded India’s role at the G20.

The G20 was formed in 1999 as a meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors in the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis. Later on in 2008, the first G20 Leaders' Summit was held and the forum played a key role in helping member countries respond to the global financial crisis.
