Voice Of Global South Summit 2023: PM Modi Talks About World's State Of Crisis
Prime Minister Modi raised worries about the rising cost of food, gasoline, and fertilisers, the impact of COVID on the economy, and the increase in natural disasters brought on by climate change.
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on Thursday that the world is in a crisis and it is difficult to predict how long this state of instability will last. He was referring to a number of international issues brought on by terrorism, war, and other forms of conflict.
Prime Minister Modi raised worries about the rising cost of food, gasoline, and fertilisers, the impact of COVID on the economy, and the increase in natural disasters brought on by climate change in his opening remarks at the Voice of Global South virtual summit.
In the presence of several leaders from various poor countries, he declared, "It is obvious that the globe is in a situation of crisis." It is challenging to forecast how long the "state of instability" would remain, he continued.
"The future is most important to us in the Global South... The Global South did not generate the majority of global crises, but we are more affected by them "he said. India has always shared its development experiences with its "brothers of the Global South," according to PM Modi.
It is only natural that our goal is to strengthen the voice of the Global South as India begins its G20 Presidency this year, he remarked. The two-day summit is being hosted by India in order to bring together nations from the Global South and provide them with a forum to discuss issues such as food and energy security brought on by the situation in Ukraine.
The majority of the "Global South" comprises nations in South America, Africa, and Asia. "Voice of Global South - for Human-Centric Development" is the theme of the opening leaders' session, and "Unity of Voice-Unity of Purpose" will be the topic of the closing leaders' session.
Ten sessions are scheduled for the summit, six of which will take place on Friday and four on Thursday. The attendance of ministers and leaders from 10 to 20 different nations is anticipated at each session.
