Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to attend the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France today, where he will address sessions on environment, climate, oceans and digital transformation.
It may be noted that India is not a member of the G7 group. However, Modi will attend the Summit as a special guest as he has been personally invited by French President Emmanuel Macron. Pertaining to the matter, External Affairs Ministry said that the invitation reflects the personal chemistry between the two leaders and also recognition of India as a major economic power.
The countries which are part of the G7 include the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the US.
The PM set foot in Biarritz from Manama on Sunday after concluding his three-nation tour to France, the UAE and Bahrain.
