At G20 Summit, PM Narendra Modi pitches for ‘global index’ for post-COVID-19 world

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday pitched for a “new global index” for the post-COVID world, primarily based on which the grouping of the world’s 20 main economies can lay “foundation of a new world”.

An official assertion by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) launch defined the 4 key components of the index–a “creation of a vast Talent Pool”, “ensuring that technology reaches all segments of the society”, “transparency in systems of governance” and “dealing with Mother Earth with a spirit of trusteeship”.

When it involves the expertise pool, PM Modi underscored the significance of “multi-skilling and re-skilling” which can “enhance the dignity of citizens but would make our citizens more resilient to face crises”. Largely his concept was a world that offers with “environment and nature” as “trustees rather than owners” whose “benchmark” could possibly be a Per Capita Carbon Footprint.

PM Modi termed the COVID-19 pandemic as an “important turning point in the history of humanity” and “the biggest challenge the world is facing since World War II” and referred to as for “decisive action by G20, not limited to economic recovery, jobs, and trade, but to focus on preserving planet earth”, the official launch added.
