Shri Anurag Singh Thakur

Hon'ble Youth Affairs and Sports Minister

Under the leadership of our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has assumed the Presidency of G20. This is a moment of great honour and pride for all of India. With the Presidency of G20, India now has the unique opportunity to show the world the incredible prowess of our people.

India’s rapid and sustainable growth can be attributed to the youth of the country. Comprising of an overwhelming majority of the total population, India’s youth has ensured that the 21st century belongs to India. Be it technology, pharmaceuticals, renewable energy or sports, India’s youth is now leading the world in innumerable spheres.

At a time of India’s G20 Presidency, the youth engagement group, Y20, will play a crucial role in taking India’s Presidency to the masses of the country. In the true spirit of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ the theme of G20 India, Y20 will ensure that India’s civilisational values along with its new age and jet-setting growth story resonates across the globe.

I am certain that Y20 India will ensure that the remarkable vision and genius of the youth of India, is channelised in a manner that young minds can contribute their best to the nation at the time of our Presidency.
