Watch: UAE President arrives in New Delhi for G20 summit


The UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has arrived in New Delhi, India on Friday, as reported by PTI.

The President arrived in the country ahead of the G20 summit set to take place in the capital.


Leaders from all over the globe have been arriving into the country for the 18th summit with its theme being ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’.

The UAE’s participation in this year’s summit as a guest country comes at the invitation of India, which is the presidency of the G20. This reaffirms the UAE’s commitment to making a positive contribution to the work of the G20, with a focus on the priorities set by the Indian presidency for the summit.

As the host of the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP28) in 2023, the UAE will focus on its pivotal role in enhancing global climate action, in line with the common goals and aspirations of the G20 and COP28.

Through its pioneering agenda in the clean energy sector and Net Zero by 2050 climate neutrality initiative, the UAE has doubled its efforts through the Sherpa meetings of the G20 Finance Tracks.

The UAE’s participation in the G20 pre-summit meetings this year was notable for its presentation of case studies on the most successful and latest practices in the country related to development, public policies, systems, and legislation. These practices were published by the G20 in various fields and reports, reflecting the UAE’s development across a range of sectors.

The G20 countries are the UAE’s largest trading partners, accounting for 43 per cent of its non-oil exports and 39 per cent of its re-exports. They also account for 67 per cent of the UAE’s commodity imports.
