French President Emmanuel Macron is scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 10, following the conclusion of the G20 Summit in India. The meeting is expected to take place during a lunch.
France has emphasized the importance of the G20 Summit in India as an opportunity to advance collaborative efforts in addressing significant global challenges. This announcement coincided with President Macron’s confirmed participation in the summit.
President Macron’s office has confirmed his travel plans, indicating that he will participate in the G20 Summit in Delhi on September 9 and 10. Subsequently, he will embark on a bilateral visit to Bangladesh.
The summit will facilitate President Macron’s ongoing dialogues with leaders from around the world, with the objective of addressing and mitigating the risks associated with global fragmentation.
Macron’s office has stressed that the G20 Summit will also serve as a platform to build upon the outcomes of the New Global Financial Pact summit held in Paris the previous June. This initiative led to the establishment of the Paris agenda for people and the planet, offering a framework for collective action to balance poverty alleviation with environmental protection.
The G20, composed of member countries representing approximately 85 percent of global GDP, over 75 percent of global trade, and around two-thirds of the world’s population, continues to play a pivotal role in addressing pressing global issues.
