Why Is The G20 Summit Important?
After World War II, countries came together and built cordial relationships with each other. The main aim was to avoid war and sought issues through bilateral dialogue. In addition to this, matters like environment preservation, economic development, human rights, world health and so on needed to be discussed. And therefore, several organisations like the United Nations, WHO, UNESCO, FAO and others were formed.
G20 is one such organisation that focuses on building economic relations. It also addresses issues faced like global food scarcity, agriculture, global GDP and so on. Along with member countries, think tanks, youth, labour, businesses, researchers, civil societies and parliamentarians of the respective countries also participate in this summit.
