Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked US President Joe Biden for accepting the proposal to add 'Africa' as a permanent member of the G20.

PM Modi said, “Under our G20 presidency, we are giving strength to 'One Earth, One Family, One Future' and giving voice to the Global South. I thank President Biden for granting support to my proposal of making Africa a permanent G20 member. I firmly believe that the world's two largest democracies - India and the US will be able to fulfil the aspirations of expectations and aspirations of the whole world."

Recently, PM Modi communicated with fellow G20 leaders, urging them to grant the African Union complete membership within the organization. This request aligns with the Union's own appeal, which aims to amplify Africa's influence globally and contribute to shaping our collective future.

Prime Minister Modi demonstrates unwavering support and advocacy for the African cause, taking a proactive stance on the matter. Recognizing the significance of amplifying the voice of Global South nations, especially those in Africa, he actively champions their representation on international platforms.

During India's G20 Presidency, Prime Minister Modi places considerable emphasis on integrating the priorities of African countries into the G20 agenda, emphasizing their importance and ensuring their concerns are duly addressed.

The G20, established in 1999 following the Asian financial crisis, consists of the world's 20 largest economies. Its member nations include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union.

In September, New Delhi is scheduled to host the G20 Summit, showcasing India's role as the summit's host nation.
