President Biden's Upcoming Visit to India for G20 Summit Participation

President Biden will be visiting India from September 7-10 and aims to affirm US participation in the G-20 summit, addressing climate change and global development.

President Biden will visit India on September 7th for a three-day visit and return to the US on September 10th. The primary agenda of this visit is to register the US' participation in the G-20 summit alongside 20 other nations.

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

The G-20 theme of India is ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’ aims at achieving sustainable growth that is increasingly compatible with the protection of the environment globally. Proposed by PM Modi, the theme is 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. 

Biden will likely appreciate PM Modi, owing to his commendable leadership of G20, reaffirming the US commitment to the G20 as the premier forum of economic cooperation. Holding the presidency since December 2022, India’s frontier role in the G20 will remain till November 2023, for which the nation has conducted numerous meetings occasionally.

The Group of 20, often referred to as G20, is an intergovernmental forum comprising 19 nations and the European Union. It addresses critical rising issues in the global economy, like international financial stability, climate change mitigation, and substantial development. India and the US are emerging as potential partners for each other with milestone collaborations. The G20 summit is one such crucial approach, where both nations are planning to establish symbiotic growth in the future in sectors like education, innovation, space, and defense cooperation.
