On 1 December 2022, India assumed the presidency of G20, the grouping which brings together 20 of the world’s largest economies. With the sluggish post-pandemic economic recovery and increased geopolitical tensions, courtesy of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, G20’s priorities have evolved in the last two years. However, for India, themes like digital public infrastructure, climate change and sustainability, supply chain resilience and reformed multilateralism will dominate the agenda. With this presidency, India can drive initiatives in critical areas as the world settles into the second decade of the 21st century.
