Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will attend the two-day meeting of G-20 Finance Ministers and central bank governors in Japan beginning today.

Besides Sitharaman, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das is also likely to attend the meeting.

The meeting is likely to focus on risks and challenges being faced by the global economy, investment in infrastructure and international taxation.

The deliberations at the meeting would be followed by the G-20 Leaders’ Summit scheduled at Osaka later this month and commerce minister Piyush Goyal will lead the Indian delegation for the two-day G20 Ministerial meeting on Trade and Digital Economy at Japan’s Tsukuba city today.

Global trade, WTO matters and digital trade will be the key agendas to be discussed at the meeting. Goyal will also hold dialogue with other participating Trade Ministers on current international trade and investments.
