by Nidhi Bhati

During the G20 Finance Ministers meeting held on 20 November 2020, Finance Minister (FM) Nirmala Sitharaman called for continued collective and coordinated efforts by G20 members to counter the damaging impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Sitharaman highlighted affordability and accessibility of vaccines for all as a crucial step in this direction. She pointed out that the G20 Action Plan is the mainstay of the G20’s economic response, which not only coordinates immediate response but also guides the long-term recovery efforts. Sitharaman further highlighted that India’s special economic stimulus packages announced till date amount to 15 per cent of the country’s GDP and the package announced last week has a special focus on job creation.
