Global South Summit’s voice

India will hold a special virtual summit on January 12–13, 2023, as part of an innovative and novel initiative. The goal of this “Voice of Global South Summit,” which is being held under the theme “Unity of Voice, Unity of Purpose,” is to bring together nations from around the world to discuss their priorities and points of view. This Summit is inviting more than 120 nations to take part.

The initiative is supported by Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, an Indian philosophy, and is based on Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of the Sabka Saath, Vikas, Sakka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas.

India will make efforts to ensure that the world is aware of the valuable contributions made by partner nations to the Voice of Global South Summit discussions.

Additionally, India’s continued presidency of the G20 offers nations that did not participate in the process a unique and significant chance to express their thoughts and hopes for the event. This is consistent with the Prime Minister’s claim that consultations will be conducted with both our G20 partners and our fellow travelers in the Global South, whose voices are frequently ignored.

Ten sessions are planned for the summit. On January 12, four sessions would be held, and on January 13, six. Leaders and Ministers from 10 to 20 countries are anticipated to attend each session.

The Prime Minister would preside over the opening and closing sessions, which would take place at the Head of State/Government level. “Voice of Global South – for Human-Centric Development” was the theme of the inaugural leaders’ session, and “Unity of Voice, Unity of Purpose” dominated the concluding leaders session.

There would also be eight ministerial sessions, each with the following subject matter:

  • Finance Ministers’ Session on “Financing People-Centric Development”
  • “Balancing Growth with Environment-Friendly Lifestyles (LiFE)” Session for Environment Ministers.
  • “Priorities of the Global South: Ensuring a Conducive Environment” Session of Foreign Ministers.
  • Energy Ministers’ Meeting on “Energy Security and Development: A Roadmap to Prosperity”
  • “Cooperation to Build Resilient Healthcare Systems” Session for Health Ministers.
  • The “Human Resource Development and Capacity Building” Session of the Education Ministers.
  • Ministers of Commerce and Trade’s Session on “Developing Synergies in the Global South: Trade, Technology, Tourism, and Resources”
  • “G-20: Suggestions for India’s Presidency” Foreign Ministers’ Session.

In due course, more information about the Summit will be made public.
