                                       PM attends G20 meet in Osaka

Last week of June Prime Minister Shri Narendra Moodi visited Osaka in Japan for participating G20 summit. Along with Prime Minister ,Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, Member of Parliament Shri Suresh Prabhu participated in the meeting.

While talking to media former Union Commerce Minister Shri Suresh Prabhu said “The G20 initially was started as a grouping to take care of global economy and therefore it is obvious that a grouping which represents more than 85% of global GDP would focus on issues related to economy. And we agreed to work at leader’s level to ensure that the global economy will be properly taken care of.

Quality infrastructure is one of the important issue of the meeting. He said “India strongly feels that infrastructure and that too quality infrastructure is a necessity which will spur growth.”

He added “Our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi made interventions in many important events and in that also he says the need for a quality infrastructure. Prime Minister also laid emphasis on the necessity to find out how we could actually work through digital economy, the Society 5.0 which is the vision of Japan. PM said, We strongly believe that infusion of technology will create economic opportunities which will breach the digital divide and also at the same time improve quality of life therefore quality infrastructure will play a very important role.”

We also agreed to work on open and resilient financial system grounded in agreed international standards. India under leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been championing that we need anti-corruption measures at global level. So fight against corruption should be done by all G20 countries by combating foreign bribery and to ensure that each G20 country has a law to enforce it so that people committing economic crimes in one geography will not be able to run away to other and try to escape the clutches of law.

This again has been raised very effectively by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Apart from issues related to anti-corruption and resilient financial system, Tourism, agriculture,Global health,global environment challenges like climate change were discussed.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi who led India’s delegation raised many issues of global concern as well as highlighted the role of India’s new innovation into making change in a manner that benefits all. PM Modi had many multilateral, bilateral interactions, he met a number of leaders.
