New Delhi: The Deputy Secretary-General (DSG) of the United Nations Amina J. Mohammed is paying an official visit to India from 3-5 July 2023.

This is her first visit to India since her reappointment as the UN Deputy Secretary General for a second five-year term in January 2022.

"During her visit, DSG will have meetings with External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar, Finance Minister Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister for Environment, Forest & Climate Change Shri Bhupender Yadav, MoS for External Affairs and Parliamentary Affairs Shri V. Muraleedharan, Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog, Shri Suman Bery, and India’s G20 Sherpa, Shri Amitabh Kant," read a statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs.

DSG will also be travelling to Bengaluru where she will be interacting with experts from premier information and technology research institutions and industry representatives to discuss India’s achievements in the digital technology domain that could be replicated in the Global South for addressing developmental challenges.

DSG’s visit to India will be an opportunity to exchange views on India’s ongoing G20 Presidency and its achievements in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) ahead of the SDG Summit in September this year, and issues related to Climate Action in context of developmental priorities.

The visit is a reflection of India’s abiding commitment to multilateralism, including through its contribution to the UN and its ongoing G20 Presidency, in addressing global challenges meaningfully.
