“We have invited the African Union with the intention of granting it permanent membership in the G20,” Narendra Modi stated at the B20 business gathering conducted ahead of the G20 summit on September 9 and 10.

In December, US Vice President Joe Biden reiterated his desire for the African Union to become a permanent member of the G20, saying that “it was going to happen.”

India is the “solution” to create “a reliable global supply chain” , because “the world has changed a lot after Covid-19”, Mr Modi said.

Thursday at the BRICS summit (group of large emerging countries) in South Africa, Mr. Modi spoke one-on-one with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
