Biden's G20 Visit to India a Milestone in India-US Ties

President Biden's visit to India to attend the G20 summit will ensure a smooth and successful commitment to India’s hosting of the G20 summit.

FREMONT, CA: On account of President Joe Biden’s departure to New Delhi, the United States promised commitment towards holding a successful G20 summit. The annual summit will be held in New Delhi on September 9th and 10th.

The American president will travel to New Delhi to participate in a bilateral meeting with PM Modi and will attend official sessions of the G20 Summit.

The White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre expressed her fascination for PM Modi over his leadership of the G20 and recalled the US’ promise to India to ensure a successful G20 summit this year. Much prior to President Biden’s visit, PM Modi’s state visit to the US indicated a determination to share priorities at the summit. Jean-Pierre also commented on President Biden’s bilateral meeting with PM Modi, adding that closer ties in the future lays the ground for shared effort between the nations.

During this visit, President Biden is expected to talk with other G20 partners about the joint efforts to tackle rising global issues, clean energy transition and combating climate changes. These leaders also aim to increase the capacity of multinational development banks, including the World Bank, to fight poverty globally.

The G20 theme of India, ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future,’ aims at achieving sustainable growth that promotes conservation of the environment globally. PM Modi proposed the theme based on a Sanskrit phrase, ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,’ drawn from the ancient Sanskrit text of the Maha Upanishad. It poses a major affirmation of the value of all life, be they human, animal, plant, or microorganisms, discussing their interconnectedness on the planet Earth and in the wider universe.

The G20, consisting of 19 countries and the European Union, serves as an intergovernmental platform tackling pressing global economic and environmental challenges. India and the US are increasingly looking to collaborate, especially through initiatives like the G20 summit, to foster mutual growth in areas such as education, innovation, space exploration, and defense cooperation.
