The daring PM Modi-led union government has confirmed Jammu and Kashmir as the venue for 2023 meetings of G-20.
A five-member high level committee for overall coordination of the event that is expected to bring together the world’s major economies.
This will be the first major international summit to be held in Jammu and Kashmir after the erstwhile state’s special status guaranteed under Article 370 of the Constitution was withdrawn and it was divided into two union territories in August 2019.
In September last year, Union Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal was appointed as India’s Sherpa for the G20.
The Ministry of External Affairs had said that India will hold the G20 presidency from December 1, 2022, and will convene the G20 leaders’ summit in 2023 for the first time.
