Next steps in counter-terrorism, climate change and black money will be G-20’s focus: Modi

New Delhi, Nov.10 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that his visit to Turkey for the G-20 Summit would take place from November 14 to 16, and he expected the focus of that meeting to be on the next steps to be taken to counter terrorism, climate change and black money.

In a series of Facebook posts, Modi said, “This summit is being held at a critical juncture, just after the adoption of Sustainable Development Goals agenda at the United Nations, and just before discussions on climate change at COP-21 in Paris on Nov 30-Dec 1.”

“During the summit, we will review the progress on decisions taken at the Brisbane Summit and take up issues of climate change, terrorism, refugees, weak growth in global economy, strategies for growth and employment, investment strategies, trade, energy and financial sector resilience.

Like last year, India’s focus on mitigating the menace of black money, tax erosion and bringing greater transparency remains.

There will be several bilateral meetings too with world leaders on the sidelines of the summit, which will help deepen our bilateral ties,” the Prime Minister said. (ANI)
