India is currently a partner of Troika ( a group formed by the past , present and future presidency of G20 meetings). It consists of Indonesia, Italy and India. The upcoming troika would comprise India, Indonesia and Brazil.
This is the first time when this type of a special group is formed to introduce the countries ,which was or is going to be the presidency of the G20 meeting, in a specific manner. This group gives these countries a voice and strengthens the power of these hosting countries.
There is another thing which makes this presidency more important is that this is the first time when some developing countries and emerging economies have rights to hold the G20 meeting. This is the best opportunity for India and upcoming host countries to harness this power.
There are several important ongoing issues that will be highlighted in these upcoming meetings of G20.
