At the conclusion of the Rome summit, the G20 Presidency Gavel was handed over in a private ceremony. It went from Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi to President Joko Widodo of Indonesia.
Goals of G20 Summit in Bali
The 2022 G20 Bali Summit aims to:
- Promote national economic resilience and efforts for recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic;
- Promote Indonesia’s achievements in reformation and democracy;
- Promote Indonesia’s leadership and commitment towards global issues;
