India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been using this year’s G20 presidency as a platform to promote and showcase India’s important role on the world stage. The recent conclusion of the G20’s Leader Summit in early September—the talks among the world’s twenty largest economies—would further highlight India’s continued emergence as a major global economic power. India’s G20 agenda is closely tied to the Vision India@2047, which lays out an ambitious agenda for its economic future and to become one of the two largest economies in the world by 2047. India’s geopolitical policies will likely affect the ascent and trajectory of this growth, including how it navigates relations with the U.S., China, the EU, and Russia now and in the coming years.
In this program, Badri Narayanan Gopalakrishnan, fellow at Government of India’s NITI Aayog, and Trisha Ray, Associate Director and Resident Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s GeoTech Center will help us understand key takeaways from the G20 summit, the Vision 2047 agenda, how India’s leaders and policymakers plan to achieve the goals as laid out in the Vision, and the role of India’s foreign and trade policies in shaping future economic growth. The discussion will be moderated by Harshul Asnani, President of the Technology and Media Business at Tech Mahindra.
