We, the Global South, have the largest stakes in the future. Most global challenges have not been created by Global South, but they affect us more, he asserted.The Prime Minister further mentioned that India has always shared its “developmental experience with our brothers of Global South”. As India begins its G20 Presidency this year, it is natural that our aim is to amplify the voice of Global South, he emphasised.

“We, the global South, have the largest stakes in the future. Three-fourths of humanity live in our countries. India has always shared its development experience with the global south. Our development partnerships cover all geographies and diverse sectors,” PM Modi said.


“Together, we must attempt to redesign global political and financial governance. Working together can reduce inequalities, enlarge opportunities, support growth, and spread progress and prosperity,” he added.The Prime Minister called to “re-energise the world”, “we should together call for a global agenda of Response, Recognition, Respect, and Reform.

” The need of the hour is to identify Simple, Scalable and Sustainable Solutions, he mentioned.”Over the next two days, we will have discussions on eight priority areas. I am confident that together, the Global South can form new and creative ideas. These ideas can form the basis of our voices in G-20 and other forums,” PM Modi emphasised.
