NEW DELHI: The coordination committee on India’s G20 presidency met on Monday to review the preparatory aspects linked to the summit to be held in the national capital on September 9-10.

The meeting, chaired by principal secretary to the PM, P K Mishra took stock of the arrangements at the summit venue as well as all aspects relating to protocol, security, airport coordination, media, infrastructure upgrades and arrangements in Delhi and neighbouring states. Mishra called on all agencies to work in a “whole of government” approach to make the G20 summit a success.

The committee members visited venues proposed for different meetings. It was also decided to have dry runs/mock exercises so that different agencies work in a seamless manner. The committee also provided guidance and direction for work on different preparatory aspects for the summit and decided to convene again for a further review in the next two weeks.

The meeting of the coordination committee provided an opportunity for a review of G20 meetings held so far and the remaining meetings scheduled under India’s presidency. The committee noted that under its presidency, India had organised 170 meetings in 55 different locations in the country. A number of meetings at the ministerial level are scheduled to be held in July and August.

The committee has been authorised by the cabinet to oversee all preparations and arrangements relating to India’s presidency. Till date, five meetings of the committee have taken place. In addition to this, a number of meetings have been held to discuss specific substantive and logistical issues relating to India’s presidency.

National security advisor Ajit Doval, Delhi lieutenant governor V K Saxena and cabinet secretary Rajiv Gauba were among those present at the meeting.
