From 1 to 4 March, High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell will be in New Delhi, to attend the G20 Foreign Ministers meetings held in the framework of India’s G20 Presidency, and to participate in the Raisina Dialogue.

On Wednesday, 1 March, High Representative/Vice-President Borrell will deliver a speech at the CII Business Conclave during the plenary on “India-Europe: Partners for future growth” at 10:00 CET (14:30 IST).

High Representative/Vice-President Borrell will meet the Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishankar. On the agenda will be the bilateral aspects of the strategic partnership and a range of regional and international security issues, both in Europe and in Asia.

On Thursday, 2 March, High Representative/Vice-President Borrell will participate in the G20 Foreign Ministers meeting. India’s G20 Presidency takes place under the theme “One Earth · One Family · One Future” (Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam) with more than 200 events around the country.

As Russia’s war against Ukraine marks its one-year anniversary, the High Representative will convey a strong message on Russia’s blatant violation of international law and the UN Charter, and its global consequences, in particular on energy and food insecurity, but also on the importance of a stronger multilateralism system, fit for the future, as well as the crucial need to speed up the green transition to address the existential threats of climate change and biodiversity loss globally. The High Representative will also focus on threats enabled by new technologies, such as disinformation and cybersecurity.

On Friday, 3 March, High Representative/Vice-President Borrell will participate in the Raisina Dialogue at the session “The New High Table: Realigning the G20 in a changing world”. The High Representative’s intervention will be available on Europe by Satellite (EbS).
