India’s G20 presidency’s theme of ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’ sets the tone for the 2023 Infrastructure Agenda as it underlines the message of equitable growth and aptly ties up with the central agenda of the discussions, which is building resilient, inclusive, and sustainable urban infrastructure, the release said.

“In the Pune meeting, discussions will focus on the agenda for the Infrastructure Working Group under the Indian presidency. The flagship priority to be discussed in this meeting is ‘Financing Cities of Tomorrow: Inclusive, Resilient and Sustainable’," it said.

On day one, the IWG delegates will undertake a series of official meetings and discuss the 2023 Infrastructure Agenda.

They would also visit the Pune University for tree plantation, followed by a high-level workshop on ‘Financing for the cities of Tomorrow’. The day will conclude with a networking dinner.

“Apart from the formal discussions, delegates will be able to experience the rich culture and beautiful landscapes of the city, with optional excursions such as Pune Heritage Walk, city tour, and a trip to Mahabaleshwar," the release said.
