Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla Announces Dates for P-20 Summit

NEW DELHI:  Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla unveiled the schedule for the upcoming P-20 summit, a gathering of parliamentary speakers from G20 nations. The two-day conference is set to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 13th of October, 2023.

During a press conference, Speaker Om Birla revealed that a notable roster of participants has already confirmed their attendance. This includes 50 Members of Parliament and 14 General Secretaries, encompassing 26 Presidents, 10 Vice-Presidents, 01 Committee Chairman, and the President of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU). Remarkably, the President of the Pan African Parliament will be making their debut appearance at the P-20 event in India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will officially inaugurate the P-20 summit, and this event holds special significance as India has dedicated its G-20 presidency to the welfare of its citizens. Speaker Om Birla emphasized the importance of making the P-20 summit as inclusive and accessible to the public as possible.

The conference will feature four high-level sessions over the two days, focusing on crucial topics such as accelerating SDGs, sustainable energy transition, women-led development, and the transformation of people's lives through public digital platforms. These sessions will facilitate discussions among G-20 members and guest countries on how parliamentary institutions can effectively contribute to the goals of the P-20.

In addition to these discussions, an exhibition titled 'Mother of Democracy' will showcase India's rich democratic heritage and traditions. Prior to the LiFE (Lifestyle for Sustainable Development) Summit on October 12, a Parliamentary Forum on LIFE (Lifestyle for the Environment) will also take place.

Delegates attending the summit on October 13 will have the opportunity to tour the Parliament House Complex, where they will pay their respects at the statue of Mahatma Gandhi. Following the tour, an evening of cultural festivities and dialogue, culminating in a dinner, will be organized by the Lok Sabha Secretariat within the Parliament complex.

The 9th P-20 Summit is a collaborative effort between the Parliament of India and the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India. Regrettably, Germany and Argentina will not be in attendance due to internal reasons.

The summit's conclusion will see the release of a joint statement urging G-20 governments to address global challenges with a commitment to equality, inclusivity, and peace. The event will mark a significant moment in the P-20 summit's history, following its inception with the support of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 1 and 2, 2018.
