PM's Opening Statement at G20 Summit Emphasizes Equal Growth for Whole World

The G20 Summit Delhi 2023 Declaration is the 18th G20 Group meeting held in India as a President country. The multilateral event was commended in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, with a striking speech by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and another permanent member of the elite group - the African Union.

Before starting his address speech Narendra Modi expressed his “heartfelt condolences to the people affected by the earthquake that occurred in Morocco a moment ago.” He wished “all the injured people get well soon. The entire world community is with Morocco in this difficult time, and” also that India is “ready to provide them all possible assistance.”

Modi continued his speech by extending “a warm welcome to all” the participating countries. Further, he mentioned a “pillar that is nearly two and a half thousand years old,” where a message inscribed in Sanskrit means - ‘The welfare and happiness of humanity should always be ensured.’

During his speech, the Indian PM emphasized the need “to give a new direction to the entire world” and stressed “fulfilling all our responsibilities with a Human Centric approach.”

Then the prime minister mentioned the Covid-19 crisis that caused a “lack of trust” “in the world”. So, he invited “the entire world to come together and, first and foremost, transform this Global Trust Deficit into global trust and confidence.” Further, he said, “This is a time for all of us to walk together, and the mantra of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas, and Sabka Prayas' can become a guiding light for all of us.”

“Whether its a turbulent global economy, or the North-South divide, or the distance between East and West, Management of Food, Fuel, and Fertilizer, Or dealing with Terrorism and Cybersecurity, Or ensuring Health, Energy, and Water Security. We must move towards concrete solutions for these challenges, not just for the present but also for future generations,” he kept on saying.

Narendra Modi, in his speech, summoned all the world to be a part of equal growth of this world saying, “India's G-20 presidency has become a symbol of inclusion, both within the country and beyond, representing the spirit of 'Sabka Saath'. It has become a 'People's G-20’. Millions of Indians have engaged with it. Over 200 meetings have been held in more than 60 cities across the country. It was in the spirit of 'Sabka Saath' that India proposed permanent membership for the African Union in the G-20. I believe that we all agree on this proposal. With your consent, before we proceed with further proceedings, I invite the Chairperson of the African Union to take their place as a permanent member of the G-20.”

In this way, Mr Modi concluded his speech with a positive and powerful message to make growth equal for the whole world. All the worldwide audience present in the auditorium applauded unanimously for the generous approach shown by India.
