India assumed the presidency of the Group of 20 (G-20), the alliance of 19 major economies and the European Union on December 1.

The Centre has planned to organise over 200 meetings in 50 cities across the country during its G-20 Presidency.

The PM's vision is to connect all districts and blocks with G-20 so that the message will reach to masses through Jan Bhagidari initiatives, which aims to connect people in governance at the local level.

The Prime Minister in his last month's 'Mann ki Baat' said that assuming the G20 presidency was a huge opportunity for India and that the country must utilise it by focusing on global good. "Friends, the Presidency of G20 has arrived as a big opportunity for us. We have to make full use of this opportunity and focus on global good and world welfare," he said.
