G20 in Bali, Meloni sees world leaders: “Italy is not isolated, left-wing detractors denied”

Two intense days, full of meaning and full of events to show everyone that the Italian government she leads is not as isolated as some would have us believe. After Cop27 in Egypt, Giorgia Meloni landed in Indonesia (with her daughter Ginevra in tow), for her second international summit since arriving at Palazzo Chigi. At the G20 in Bali, Italy wants to demonstrate that it can play a central role, so the summit will be an opportunity for the Prime Minister to address the main themes of the global agenda also through a series of bilateral agreements already included in the agenda. First, with the President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, and the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi-Jinping. But there will also be talks with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Indonesian President Joko Widodo. 🇧🇷

In short, a busy agenda that could be further enriched, since exchanges with other international leaders outside the summit’s work are not excluded. “This trip – is the reasoning that filters from Palazzo Chigi – denies the detractors of Meloni and the government”. In addition, the travel program shows that “there is great attention to Italy and not that isolation that the left is saying”. In short, the summary is that “everyone recognizes Italy as a fundamental role on the international chessboard”.

The attention of leaders in Indonesia will almost certainly also be given to the consequences of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The war that lasted nearly nine months, in fact, highlighted the intertwined global emergencies of food and energy security. The Indonesian presidency of the G20 incorporated these themes in the three main pillars that guide the definition of the general agenda (global health architecture, sustainable energy transition, digital transformation) and chose ‘Back together, recover stronger’ as the official slogan of the 17th summit that brings together the leaders of the world’s major economies. The aim of the Bali Summit is to advance the issue of food security, addressing the current global crisis with special attention to developing countries, preventing hunger and hunger in the most vulnerable countries and supporting the smooth functioning of global food chains. Strengthening energy security and pursuing the climate commitments assumed at the G20 Summit in Rome in 2021 are other goals that the Bali Summit proposes, as well as the adoption of measures aimed at achieving stability, transparency and accessibility of energy markets.
