Arvind Panagariya says India needs full-time Sherpa for G20

Arvind Panagariya, Niti Aayog Vice-Chairman today said he has recommended to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to find a full-time Sherpa for G20 talks as India's role is expanding in the global arena.

"Globally India's role is expanding. I have suggested to the Prime Minister that perhaps we need to find a full-time Sherpa ... Globally so many things are happening," Panagariya said. 

He added, "sherpas, who are representatives of leaders of G20 member countries, coordinate on the agenda of a summit. As per the practice, the deputy chairman of the erstwhile Planning Commission used to be the Sherpa for G20 talks."
