Among the prominent leaders arriving in India’s capital city on Friday (8) morning for the G20 summit are Italian prime minister Giorgia Meloni, Argentine president Alberto Fernández, and IMF Chief Kristalina Georgieva.

The G20 leaders will deliberate on pressing global issues at the grouping’s annual summit on September 9 and 10. India is hosting the summit in its capacity as the current G20 chair.
