Ahead of the G20 Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday shared a set of dos and don'ts to be observed by ministers during the two-day event to ensure that the visiting dignitaries are not put to any inconvenience.

India will host the 18th meeting of the G20 between September 9 and 10 at the ‘Bharat Mandapam’ in the Pragati Maidan area of New Delhi. The theme will revolve around the ideas of 'One Earth,' 'One Family,' and 'One Future,' which underscore the essence of unity and collective action. The G20 logo draws inspiration from the vibrant colours of India’s national flag – saffron, white and green, and blue.
