Bali, Indonesia, is the venue for the 17th Group of 20 (G20) Heads of State and Government Summit.
The G20 meeting in 2022 will center on the theme “Recover Together, Recover Stronger” under Indonesian Presidency.
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen hosted the summit’s opening as head of state. Just days after welcoming numerous world powers, including President Joe Biden, for a summit in Phnom Penh, sources revealed on Tuesday that he returned positive for COVID-19 at the Group of 20 conferences in Bali.
The G20 process and the rigorous work done during the year through Ministerial Meetings, Working Groups, and Engagement Groups are brought to a close at the Leaders’ Summit.
The Indonesian Presidency will concentrate on three main pillars for its G20 2022 Presidency in light of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effects on every element of humanity and many countries’ inability to manage the crisis.
A Covid-19 Diagnosis Forces Hun Sen To Cancel All Meetings
The Cambodian president announced on his Facebook page that he had tested positive on Monday night, so an Indonesian doctor verified the results.
His sample was collected by Indonesian medical personnel upon his arrival in Bali on Monday night, and they later verified that he was positive.
He announced that he was leaving for Cambodia and would not be attending the G-20 summit or the APEC business forum in Bangkok the following year.
The change occurred following separate discussions Hun Sen had on the sidelines of ASEAN-related conferences that ended on Sunday in Phnom Penh with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, US President Joe Biden, and other international officials.
As the head of ASEAN, Hun Sen was scheduled to participate in the two-day G-20 conference, which got underway on Tuesday.
Hun Sen had one-on-one meetings with many of the leaders at the ASEAN summit, which Cambodia hosted and ended on Sunday.
He claimed his late Monday arrival in Bali and inability to attend a dinner with French President Emmanuel Macron and other world leaders was fortunate.
Hun Sen has announced that all delegation members from Cambodia must depart Bali for Cambodia to guarantee the health of other summit participants.
Noteworthy Developments At The G20’s 17th Ministerial Meeting
For the world’s financial markets, outcomes at the G20 conference might be advantageous. Clifford Bennett, Chief Economist at Australian-based ACY Securities, stated as much in his market observation and interview.
The meeting between the presidents of the US and China seemed to have gone very well, according to a comment from Bennett, who speculated that there may have been some restored understanding over Taiwan.
He claimed that from a regional and global geopolitical risk standpoint, this would be a healthy development for all of Asia.
In addition, world dignitaries, including Indian Prime Minister Modi, visited Bali’s largest mangrove forest and planted mangroves there.
On the grounds of the G-20 Summit, there is a mangrove forest called Taman Hutan Raya Ngurah Rai. Before calling their tour a close, the tour’s leaders applauded those who had planted mangroves as they passed through a greenhouse.
Putin, the leader of Russia, was absent from the gathering of the heads of state since he turned down the offer. Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, was absent from a meeting of the Group of 20 (G20) country leaders.
However, he then conveyed that he might join electronically through representatives of Indonesia, the host nation, and Russia. According to the officials, Putin would be physically represented at the summit on Bali by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
Before gathering leaders from the Group, which would be the first since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine into whatever Putin called a “special military operation,” Indonesian President Joko Widodo had been endeavoring to intervene among major world powers.
