New Delhi. The central government will convene an all-party meeting on Monday to seek suggestions, discuss and finalize strategies for the G20 summit to be hosted by India in September next year. On behalf of Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi, presidents of about 40 parties have been invited to the meeting. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be present in this meeting to be held at Rashtrapati Bhavan. Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar is also likely to attend the meeting. India officially assumed the presidency of the G20 on 1 December.

India is expected to host over 200 G20 meetings from this month at various places in the country including Hyderabad. Next year, on September 9 and 10, there will be a summit of G20 leaders at the head of state or head of government level in New Delhi. Before this, many G20 meetings will be organized in different parts of the country. West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress President Mamata Banerjee will reach Delhi on Monday. She will attend the all-party meeting.

However, Banerjee said that she would attend the meeting as Trinamool Congress President and not as the Chief Minister of West Bengal. Earlier this month, at the Bali summit, Indonesia handed over the G20 chairmanship to India for the coming year and Prime Minister Narendra Modi described it as a matter of pride for every Indian citizen. The G20 is an intergovernmental forum of the world’s major developed and developing economies. This includes Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States and the European Union.
