Towards a brighter tomorrow: India's chairmanship of the G20 and the dawn of a new multilateralism

World 17:08 30.11.2023

"Today marks 365 days since India chaired the G20. Taking over the chairmanship of the G20, India sought to offer the world an alternative to the status quo, a shift from GDP-centric to people-centric progress. India aimed to remind the world of what unites us, not what separates us. Finally, a global debate had to begin - the interests of the minority had to give way to the wishes of the majority. This required a fundamental reform of multilateralism as we know it."

Ednews reports that this statement was made by İndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Inclusive, ambitious, action-oriented and decisive – these four words have defined our approach as G20 President, and the New Delhi Leaders' Declaration (NDLD), unanimously adopted by all G20 members, is proof of our commitment to deliver on these principles.

Based on the principle of inclusiveness, the African Union (55 countries) joined the G20 forum under the chairmanship of India. This proactive stance has encouraged a more inclusive dialogue on global issues and opportunities. It also influenced India's internal approach to the G20, making it a People's Presidency befitting the world's largest democracy. At a critical juncture in the 2030 Agenda, India launched the G20 2023 Action Plan to accelerate progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), demonstrating an action-oriented approach to interrelated issues including health, education, gender equality, environmental sustainability and others. 

It is a matter of pride that during our presidency, the G20 achieved 87 results and adopted 118 documents, which is a significant increase compared to the past.

During its presidency of the G20, India has led discussions on geopolitical issues and their impact on economic growth and development. Terrorism and the senseless killing of civilians is unacceptable and we must treat it with a zero tolerance policy. We must embody humanity over hostility and reiterate that this is not a time of war.

I am delighted that India has achieved extraordinary things during its chairmanship: it has revitalized multilateralism, strengthened the voice of the Global South, supported development and fought for the empowerment of women everywhere.701d41aa-2a60-4315-a114-ce684b10d173.jpg

As we hand over the presidency of the G20 to Brazil, we are confident that our collective actions for people, planet, peace and prosperity will resonate for years to come."
