G20 Summit: Leaders from the Group of 20 (G20) major economies will convene in New Delhi in an attempt to find solutions to some of the world’s most urgent problems in the midst of a deep geopolitical rift over the Ukraine conflict that threatens progress on multiple global fronts.
India, the group’s leader this year, has pulled out all the stops, deploying drones around the nation’s capital, painting murals, and using large-scale langur cutouts to repel primates.
Here is a list of the main world leaders attending the G20 Summit in New Delhi, along with the hotels where they will be staying.
The vice president of the United States will arrive in New Delhi and stay at the ITC Maurya. On Friday, he will engage in bilateral discussions with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and is anticipated to discuss renewable energy transition and climate change at the Summit.
Rishi Sunak will attend the G20 Summit during his first official visit to India as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He will reside at the hotel Shangri La.
Ahead of the summit, the 43-year-old praised Prime Minister Modi’s leadership and declared India to be the “right country at the right time.”
China’s delegation will be led by Premier Li Qiang, effectively indicating that President Xi Jinping will not attend and destroying any possibility of a meeting with Vice President Joe Biden. This will be the first time since 2008 that a Chinese president has missed a G20 leaders’ summit, although Xi attended virtually in 2020 and 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The delegation will remain at the Taj Hotel in Delhi.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will travel to Indonesia to attend the ASEAN summit before arriving in New Delhi on Saturday and Sunday for the G20 summit. He will reside at the Hotel Lalit.
The visit to India by Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese will be part of a three-nation mission that will also take him to Indonesia and the Philippines. He will reside at the Imperial Hotel during the G20 Summit.
