The G20 is a coalition of 19 countries and the EU that convenes to address global economic and political challenges. Together, they represent 85% of global GDP, over 75% of international trade, and house two-thirds of the world's population. Members include nations like the US, UK, China, and Brazil, among others.
Leaders from around the globe, including presidents and prime ministers, are convening in Delhi, India, for the G20 annual summit from September 9-10.
In 2023, India aims for the summit's focus on sustainable development and equitable growth, hoping to avoid the overshadowing Ukraine conflict that disrupted the 2022 Bali summit. The conflict previously prevented a joint statement at a G20 Delhi meeting.
In May 2023, China and Saudi Arabia skipped a G20 tourism meeting in Kashmir due to territorial disputes involving Pakistan and India. Further, tensions rose between India and China after Beijing claimed Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin as Chinese lands in a recent map. The US urged China to maintain a constructive approach at the summit.
