Conference on how India’s G20 presidency can forge inclusive world order

More than four months after India assumed the G20 presidency, the country’s G20 Chief Coordinator, eminent diplomats and experts will share their views at a conference in New Delhi on how New Delhi can leverage its G20 presidency to help forge a more democratic and inclusive world order.

Organized by India Writes Network and Centre for Global India Insights, a think tank focused on international affairs, the conference themed, “India’s G20 Moment: Forging an Inclusive World Order” will be held in New Delhi on April 12.

Mr Harsh Vardhan Shringla, India’s G20 Chief Coordinator, will deliver the Keynote address at the conference.

Eminent personalities who will speak at the conference include Amar Patnaik, Member of Parliament and author; Indonesia’s Ambassador to India Ina H. Krisnamurthi; UN Resident Coordinator Shombi Sharp; Mr Deep Kapuria, Chairman, The Hi-Tech Group; Eduardo Uziel, Charge D’ Affairs, Embassy of Brazil; and Ashish Kumar Sinha, Joint Secretary (G20-II), MEA.

The special edition of India and the World, titled “India’s G20 Moment: Healing Hope & Harmony,” will also be unveiled at the conference.

“The global governance structure has become hopelessly archaic. Reforms are urgently needed to democratize the international order,” said Manish Chand, Founder-CEO, India Writes Network and CGII. Against this backdrop, India has a unique opportunity to shape a truly inclusive world order, which is more representative and reflective of aspirations of developing countries, he said. Amplifying the theme of the conference, Mr Chand underlined that it is India’s G20 moment in many ways as the world is increasingly looking at India as a problem-solver and agenda-setter.

Reforming the global governance architecture holds the key to shaping an inclusive world order which will benefit the entire world in the spirit of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,” the philosophy of One Earth One Family One Future that animates India’s G20 presidency, said the concept note for the conference.

The conference is expected to culminate in concrete proposals for facilitating reformed multilateralism and enhancing global collaboration across crucial areas ranging from accelerating Sustainable Development Goals and green transition to food and energy security.
