India's G20 Presidency at Bangalore: Puri addresses G20 delegates, What's said

BANGALORE:  Hardeep Singh Puri, the Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, Petroleum, and Natural Gas, said that India is proving that economy and ecology are fundamentally intertwined rather than at odds with one another "India is in a unique position to support the goals of the developing world.

While virtually addressing the first meeting of the Working Group under India's G20 Presidency at Bangalore on Friday, Puri said, "The Working Group can be the catalyst for the G20 countries to adopt the core tenets of the LiFE movement and promote the uptake of sustainable living at a global scale."

A G20 representative, a guest country, an international organisation, and other notable dignitaries were virtually welcomed by a union minister.

Puri offered his support for the grieving and really difficult Turkish people. The outpouring of support for Turkey from people and leaders around the world is a potent reminder of our common humanity, an official said. "He said that India commiserates Turkey's loss and will continue to extend all possible humanitarian and medical support in this time of need," the official said.

He said that it is in that same spirit that all the delegates have gathered to promote the universal sense of oneness that is enunciated in this year's G20 theme of 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" (One Earth, One Family, One Future," adding, "that, now, more than ever, it is imperative that we come together and commit to an inclusive, ambitious and action-oriented agenda that promotes well-being and prosperity".

The implications of destroying biodiversity and the ecosystem are driving up costs and complexity across the board. A coordinated and calculated worldwide effort is required to address the connected issues of biodiversity loss and climate change. The G20 countries, which together represent two-thirds of the world's population, 75% of global trade, and 85% of the world's GDP, will need to take decisive and visionary leadership in order to achieve this. The G-20 debate is particularly important to the Global South, which hopes for a quick agreement to avert both a climate disaster and a financial crisis for developing countries "In an official statement, Puri added.

India is ideally situated to support the goals of the Global South. He said that during the past eight years, the government has made a lot of ground-breaking actions to promote "climate justice" He said.
