Chinese President Xi Jinping is likely to miss the upcoming G20 summit in New Delhi

Chinese President Xi Jinping is likely to be absent from the upcoming G20 summit in New Delhi, scheduled for September 9-10, 2023. This absence may be attributed to the ongoing territorial disputes between China and India in recent years, as well as the strained relations between China and the United States. Xi may be seeking to avoid a potential encounter with US President Joe Biden and other European leaders during the summit.

This summit holds significant importance for India, as it marks the first time the country will host the G20 summit. It is expected that this event will enhance India’s global standing on the international stage.

Following the transition of the G20 presidency to Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the G20 Bali Summit on November 16, 2022, India assumed the G20 Presidency for a year, starting from December 1, 2022, and concluding on November 30, 2023. Prime Minister Modi had earlier unveiled the G20 logo and introduced India’s G20 Presidency theme, “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,” which translates to “One Earth. One Family. One Future.”

The G20 comprises 19 member countries, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Türkiye, the United Kingdom, and the United States, along with the European Union. Collectively, these G20 members represent approximately 85% of the global GDP, over 75% of global trade, and about two-thirds of the world’s population.
