Prime Minister Narendra Modi will embark on a five-day visit to Italy and the United Kingdom, beginning October 29 to participate in the 16th G-20 Summit and the World Leaders' Summit of COP-26 respectively.

The external affairs ministry said that the prime minister will be participating in the 16th G-20 Summit in Rome from October 30-31 at the invitation of his Italian counterpart Mario Draghi. The Summit will also be attended by Heads of State of G-20 member countries, the European Union, and other invited countries and international organizations.
Prime Minister Modi will be attending the Summit for the eighth time. 

Having emerged as the premier global platform for the economic operation, this year's G-20 summit would be centred around the theme 'People, Planet, Prosperity', focussing on the areas of (i) recovery from the pandemic and strengthening of global health governance, (ii) economic recovery and resilience, (iii) climate change and energy transition, and (iv) sustainable development and food security.

India is scheduled to host the G-20 Summit in 2023 for the first time. The two prime ministers will also be holding a bilateral meeting. Prime Minister Modi is also scheduled to hold discussions with other heads of state. 

In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Modi will attend the World Leaders' Summit of the 26th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, in Glasgow. COP-26 is being held from October 31-November 12 under the presidency of the UK partnering with Italy. The high-level segment of COP-26, titled the World Leaders’ Summit (WLS), will be held on November 1-2.

The Summit, which will be attended by heads of state of over 120 countries, was originally scheduled to be held in 2020. However, the meeting had to be deferred to 2021 in view of the Coronavirus pandemic. On the sidelines of the COP-26 summit, Prime Minister Modi will also hold numerous bilateral meetings, including one with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
