India is set to make history as it hosts the prestigious G20 summit, marking the first time the country welcomes world leaders from the richest and most powerful nations. The G20, established in 1999 following the Asian financial crisis, aims to foster global economic cooperation. With a membership consisting of 19 countries and the European Union, this year’s summit will also see additional nations like Bangladesh, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates in attendance.
Scheduled to take place in the vibrant city of New Delhi on September 9 and 10, the theme of this year’s summit is “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,” emphasizing the unity of humanity and our shared destiny. Prominent leaders such as US President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be in attendance, though notable absences include Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Numerous critical issues will be addressed during the summit, including support for developing nations through loans, discussions on the international debt architecture, regulations pertaining to cryptocurrencies, and the effect of geopolitical uncertainties on food and energy security.
In preparation for the monumental event, India has undergone extensive preparations, with streets resurfaced, buildings painted, and illegal encroachments demolished—unfortunately leading to the displacement of thousands of people. To facilitate the smooth flow of the summit, temporary cancellations and diversions of services have been implemented by Indian Railways and New Delhi airport.
With the G20 summit just around the corner, India is ready to make its mark on the world stage. As world leaders gather to discuss pressing global issues, all eyes will be on New Delhi as the country showcases its capabilities as a host and seeks to contribute to meaningful solutions that benefit countries across the globe. Stay tuned for updates and highlights from the G20 summit, keeping you informed on Hollywood Crap!
