India became a part of the G20 “Troika” on December 1, 2021.

With this move, India has begun the process of assuming the G20 presidency next year. The term “troika” refers to the G20’s top grouping, which includes the current, prior, and upcoming presidents of Indonesia, Italy, and India.

According to a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs, India will take over the G20 presidency from Indonesia on December 1, 2022, and will host the G20 Leaders’ Summit for the first time in India in 2023.

On October 30-31, Italy held the G20 meeting, which was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during which India discussed the topic of Afghanistan’s future after the Taliban’s takeover.

On Wednesday, Indonesia took the G20 leadership. Indonesia will host rounds of discussions at different levels among G20 countries in the following months before hosting the G20 Leaders’ Summit on October 30-31, 2022. The general theme for next year’s conference will be “Recover Together, Recover Stronger.”

The Ministry of External Affairs said, “As a Troika member, India would work closely with Indonesia and Italy to guarantee consistency and continuity of the G20’s agenda.”
