This summit will strengthen the relationship between both countries, and the bilateral bond between both countries will be beneficial.

The event’s main focus is to bring a parliamentary dimension to global governance, build political support for international commitments, raise awareness and ensure that these are effectively translated into national realities.
The Lok sabha speaker of India, Om Birla, also informed that a four-level session will be organised during this summit, which will focus on Transformation in People’s Lives through Public Digital Platforms, Women-led development, Accelerating SDGs, and Sustainable Energy Transition.
