At the G20 Summit in Bali, where Indonesia will hand over the chairmanship of the gathering of the world's 20 largest countries to India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will discuss New Delhi's stance on food and energy security, health, and digital transformation.

On November 15–16, Modi will attend the annual summit alongside world leaders like US President Joe Biden, Chinese President Xi Jinping, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and French President Emmanuel Macron. The G20's differences over the Ukraine war are reflected in Russia's announcement that President Vladimir Putin will not attend and that Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will lead the mission.

The heads of the G20 members are anticipated to discuss important topics like the state of the global economy, environment and climate change, and agriculture during the summit's three working sessions for the leaders, which will be devoted to food and energy security, health, and digital transformation.

India will take over the G20 presidency in Bali. The G20 includes Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the UK, the US, and the European Union. It accounts for 85% of the world's GDP and more than 75% of its trade.
