Speaking about India taking over the G-20 Presidency, President Droupadi Murmu on Tuesday said that India’s experience and best practices can be very useful lessons for other developing countries. 

She said that in particular, India’s rich and diverse tribal heritage can be showcased to the world - living in harmony with nature, traditional systems of medicine, and a genuine ‘sustainability’ approach are the hallmarks of this unique lifestyle.

The President said that the government is investing significantly in health and development through a range of flagship initiatives. 

"The government is making special efforts to ensure an inclusive approach so that the benefits reach the most vulnerable and disadvantaged sections of society," said Murmu.

She expressed confidence that the Foundation would also make efforts to reach those who are most in need – whether they are women and girls, tribal communities, or those residing in remote parts of the country.  

The President also highlighted the role of women in the overall development of the country and called on the Foundation to continue its efforts towards gender equality and women’s empowerment.
