B20 Summit India 2023
Responsible, Accelerated, Innovative, Sustainable & Equitable Businesses (R.A.I.S.E)
India officially assumed the G20 Presidency on 01 December 2022 after taking over from Indonesia. As the official G20 dialogue forum for the global business community, B20, during India’s Presidency, led the process of galvanizing global business leaders for their views on issues of global economic and trade governance and speak in a single voice for the entire G20 business community.

Throughout India's G20 Presidency, the B20 India Secretariat, represented by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), led the B20's activities. Under the guidance of Mr N Chandrasekaran, Chair, B20 India and Executive Chairman, Tata Sons, the Secretariat was responsible for overseeing the development and execution of the B20 process.

In the same vein as its forerunners, B20 India brought together enterprises of all sizes, from all sectors, segments, and regions to provide constructive ideas to global governments towards promoting a thriving, resilient, sustainable, digitised, innovative and inclusive business paradigm under its over-arching theme of R.A.I.S.E (Responsible, Accelerated, Innovative, Sustainable, and Equitable Businesses).

To set the foundation for formulating actionable recommendations, the Secretariat operated through seven Task Forces and two Action Councils to transform the vision of global businesses into implementable policy recommendations for the G20 leader’s consideration. The outcomes from each Taskforce and Action Council under B20 India were formulated after rounds of consultations with the members of B20 India, International Advocacy Caucus, Government, and other stakeholders.

With the G20 Presidency proceeding towards its completion, the B20 India Secretariat will host the B20 Summit during 25-27 August 2023 at Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi. The Summit will witness plenary sessions on the priorities identified during B20 India.

Embracing the B20 India theme “R.A.I.S.E”, the Summit will see culmination of the year-long outcomes of all the B20 India Taskforces and Action Councils. The policy recommendations of all Taskforces and Action Councils will be presented to the G20 for their consideration and integration into the leader’s declaration.

Concluding the three-day B20 India Summit, the B20 India Secretariat will hand over the Presidency to Brazil to host G20 in 2024.
