Since India assumed the G20 Presidency on December 1, 2022, it has already held five meetings in various Indian cities and is gearing up to hold over 200 more G20 meetings in the upcoming days of its tenure, Shringla said in a video posted by the G20's official Twitter handle.

The meetings held so far were hosted in cities like Udaipur, Bengaluru, and Mumbai.

During the next two months, India has meetings planned in a number of cities, including Pune, Thiruvananthapuram, Gandhinagar, and Kolkata, India's G20 Chief Coordinator said.

"Effort has been made to ensure that our G20 presidency is one in which every citizen can participate. going by the vision of our prime minister, we intend to achieve that through ‘Jan Bhagdaari’ and ‘Jan Andolan mode," he added.

"Come and be part of this journey to make 2023 a golden year for India," he concluded.

Speaking on the eve of the Winter Session of Parliament in New Delhi on December7, 2022, Prime Minister Modi had emphasized that "this is a big opportunity for the world to know India and for India to show its potential to the whole world".

India's presidency had commenced with G20 Sherpas, who are the personal representatives of heads of state and government, and top officials of international organisations holding deliberations in Udaipur, Rajasthan from December 5, 2022.

The discussions aimed to shape the agenda for India’s G20 presidency, with the Indian side steering discussions towards finding collective solutions to key global challenges, including food and energy security.

India hosted the first Development Working Group (DWG) meeting under its G20 Presidency in Mumbai from December 13–16, 2022. This was followed by the first G20 Finance and Central Bank Deputies (FCBD) meeting in Bengaluru, Karnataka from December 13-15, 2022.

The G20, or Group of Twenty, is an international organization that brings together the largest industrialized and developing economies of the globe.

India has been a G20 member since the group's founding in 1999. India, a significant member of the group, made sure that the global financial story included its viewpoint on matters of critical national concern.

Last month, India assumed the G20 presidency for a year, succeeding Indonesia at a time when the world is experiencing different social, economic, and political concerns such as geopolitical unrest over the Russia-Ukraine conflict and post-pandemic economic recovery.

India has said that its G20 Presidency will not only belong to the G20 countries but the entire world especially the Global South.
