Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has confirmed his participation in the upcoming G20 Summit to be held in New Delhi in September. His visit to India will be part of a three-nation tour, which will also include Indonesia and the Philippines.
During the tour, Albanese will meet regional leaders to discuss global challenges and advance Australia’s economic, security, and climate agenda, said the Australian government in a statement.
The G20 is an intergovernmental association of the largest developing and developed nations on the globe. The upcoming leaders’ summit will be one of the highest-profile international gatherings to be hosted by India. The leaders gathering at the summit will focus on navigating the global economy back to strong, sustainable, and resilient growth.
“It is more important than ever that Australia works closely with international partners, including through multilateral economic forums like the G20, to address shared challenges and opportunities,” said PM Albanese.
In Jakarta, Indonesia, PM Albanese will attend the 3rd Annual ASEAN-Australia Summit and the 18th East Asia Summit. His visit to the Philippines will be the first bilateral visit of an Australian Prime Minister to the country since 2003.
