• The Union Territories (UT) of J&K and Ladakh have started preparations for the G-20 meetings, as India is set to host 43 heads of delegations in September next year.
  • “One G-20 meeting is being held in Srinagar. We have requested that one meeting is also held in Jammu,” J&K Lieutenant-Governor Manoj Sinha said at a press conference in Jammu on Wednesday.
  • Sinha chaired a high-level meeting on Tuesday to take stock of the preparations made for the upcoming G-20 summit meetings, a government spokesman said.
  • “The meetings under India’s presidency is also an opportunity to share Jammu and Kashmir’s achievements and to showcase its rich cultural heritage. We want people’s participation from J&K,” Mr. Sinha said. He said security was not a concern any more as “the backs of those who create hurdles have been broken”.
  • The L-G administration has called for the “involvement of students and educational institutions to make the meetings a grand success”. Seminars on the G-20 in educational institutions across the UT are being held. Billboards on India hosting the G-20 meetings have been erected in Srinagar and Jammu.
  • The Ladakh administration also held a meeting on Tuesday to review preparedness for a G-20 meeting planned in Ladakh in April 2023. “The G-20 meeting is a great opportunity for Ladakh to showcase its cultural heritage, which in turn shall be beneficial for future branding of Ladakh,” a spokesman said. Officials said India is expected to host over 200 meetings in over 50 cities ahead of the summit in Delhi.
