The G20 is a group of 19 countries and the European Union. It took birth in 1999. After the Asian financial crisis in 1997, which destabilized Asia first and the world later, world leaders felt the need for a comprehensive world group that would tackle global economic problems.

India became a member of G20 in 1999. It took the G20 presidency from Indonesia on December 1, 2022. Since then, India has been busy in preparing itself for the unprecedented event that will have a long-lasting impact. It is an opportunity for India to take lead in the global affairs.
