Meeting of Interdepartmental Commission to support Russia’s participation in the G20

December 27, 2023

Russia’s Presidential Representative (Sherpa) in the Group of Twenty, Deputy Chief of the Expert Directorate Svetlana Lukash held a regular meeting of the Interdepartmental Commission to support Russia’s participation in the Group of Twenty. The meeting was attended by executives from the relevant Russian ministries and agencies.

The participants emphasised the importance of the G20 as a leading economic diplomacy mechanism. Even in the current geopolitical confrontation, it offers an effective tool for promoting Russia’s interests and priorities on all matters pertaining to the global agenda. The commission praised India’s G20 chairmanship and noted the constructive ties with our Indian partners, including in the preparation of the Delhi Summit and the drafting of its outcome documents.

The participants pointed out that the initiatives put forward by Brazil as the next G20 chair are aligned with Russia’s approaches and reaffirmed their commitment to proactively fulfil this agenda which consists of ensuring sustainable, balanced and inclusive global economic growth, advancing sustainable development goals, fighting climate change and preserving the environment, improving food and energy security, promoting the digital transition, and ensuring fair reforms of global economic governance institutions.

By the end of the meeting, its participants had outlined specific tasks to make inter-agency coordination even more effective when conducting negotiations to enable Russia to be more active within the G20 in order to ensure a balanced outcome for the Rio de Janeiro Summit, scheduled to take place on November 18 and 19, 2024.
