New Delhi, December 1, 2022 — UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar said that India had begun its G20 presidency journey with a program called ‘University Connect’ where students of universities across the country will engage each other.

“During India’s G20 presidency, students of several universities will create awareness about the importance of the G20 presidency and how India can be a role model for the rest of the world through its G20 Presidency of healing, harmony, and hope,” Kumar said.

“It is wonderful that India began today its G20 presidency journey with “University Connect” by engaging with students of universities across the country, he said.

“Our students will also be ambassadors of our country in showcasing to the visiting G20 members the rapid, inclusive developmental progress that India is going through,” the University Grants Commission (UGC) head added.

India’s G20 Sherpa, Amitabh Kant, Secretary, Ministry of Higher Education, Government of India, Sanjay Murthy; Director General of the RIS, Prof. Sachin Chaturvedi; Vice-Chancellors of Delhi University, Jawahar Lal Nehru University, Jamia Milia Islamia, Amity University, Gautama Buddha University, and Sharda University were among other prominent attendees.

India formally assumed the G20 presidency on December 1, 2022.

The G20, or Group of 20, is an intergovernmental forum of the world’s major developed and developing economies. The Group comprises Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the UK, the US, and the European Union.

University Connect, on Day 1 of G20 India, engaged students & faculty from universities across India.

External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar delivered the valedictory address.

Dr. P K Mishra, Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, delivered the keynote address as follows:

“Shri Amitabh Kant, G-20 Sherpa; Shri Harsh Vardhan Shringla, G-20 Chief Co-ordinator; Shri Sanjay Murthy, Secretary, Higher Education; Professor Jagadeesh Kumar, Chairman UGC; Vice-Chancellors, faculty members and dear students,

“December 1, 2022, is a watershed moment for India and its 1.41 billion citizens as it gets a glorious opportunity to host the largest multilateral event on its soil. India assumes the G20 Presidency Today. It is a great honor and responsibility for us because this occasion is coming to us during the ‘Amritkaal’ of our independence.

“Today, India’s G20 officially begins with the ‘University Connect Program’ wherein we would engage the ‘Youth’ of India, those who would lead India from the front in years to come. As part of the G20 process, people from diverse strata and occupations will also participate in different meeting formats.

“As I said earlier, India’s G20 is not merely a diplomatic meeting. It is an excellent opportunity for India and every Indian. Our Prime Minister has said, “Today, there is an unprecedented curiosity in the world to know and understand India.”

“He continued, “In such an atmosphere, it is the responsibility of the citizens to go beyond these expectations and acquaint the world with India’s capabilities, philosophy, social and intellectual strength.”

“Our responsibility is to showcase India appropriately, befitting her stature and glory. India has as much uniqueness as it has diversity. So we are responsible for bringing out India’s best traditions before the world.”
