The Summit of G-7 leaders, the group of the world’s “most industrialised economies”, was held in Germany this week. India, along with Indonesia and a few other countries, was a special invitee.
Last week, we discussed the BRICS summit of emerging economies, which was once seen as a complementary and now a potentially competitive grouping to the G-7. What both groups have in common is that their original agenda was driven by the economy.
In this episode of Worldview, we discuss the outcomes of the G-7 Summit and understand how India is navigating the diplomatic tightrope between the G7 and Russia-China.
