The G20 summit, which brought together the most important and powerful leaders in the world, came to an end yesterday in New Delhi, India. The G20 meets annually, with a changing cast of leaders from its member nations. The group’s agenda has subsequently been expanded to encompass trade, climate change, sustainable development, health, agriculture, energy, environment, and anti-corruption. Although the bloc initially concentrated mostly on broad macroeconomic issues, this has changed over time. The summit’s theme for this year was “One Earth, One Family, One Future.” This was a momentous occasion because it was the first time that India had hosted such a significant convocation of world leaders.
This G20 conference was anything but typical for Africa. Narendra Modi, the prime minister of India, welcomed the African Union as the group’s newest member on Saturday, elevating the continent to the head of one of the most important global governance organizations.
The G20, which consists of 19 nations, includes the most significant and influential economies in the world, accounting for two-thirds of global population, 75% of global commerce, and 85% of worldwide GDP.
But South Africa was the lone G20 member until the AU was admitted to the group.
Along with the summit’s 19 member nations, which included South Africa, three African nations—Nigeria, Egypt, and Mauritius—also attended.
