Thank you for reading the news about Saudi leaders offer condolences over death of Chadian President Idriss Deby and now with the details
Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - RIYADH: Saudi Arabia on Monday handed over the honorary gavel of the G20 Presidency to Italy at a ceremony held at the Italian Embassy in Riyadh.
The tradition to pass on the gavel to the country presiding over the annual meetings began during China’s G20 Presidency in 2016. These gavels are used at the Sherpa meetings by the chair to open and close the proceedings.
Italy will chair this year’s G20 leader’s summit on Oct. 30-31.
After handing over the gavel to the Italian diplomat, Saudi G20 Sherpa Abdul Aziz Al-Rasheed said the Kingdom greatly values its partnership with Italy.
Commending the Italian G20 Presidency’s efforts, he said: “We are determined to support our Italian partners in delivering a successful and impactful summit. We look forward to continuing our active engagement in the upcoming G20 meetings and further develop the Italian-Saudi partnership in 2021 and beyond.”
The Kingdom presided over the G20 summit during a year challenged by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, he said.
“Saudi Arabia remains committed to continuing working in the same spirit of cooperation and solidarity with the Italian presidency for strong sustainable and inclusive growth.”
Besides being a G20 member, the Kingdom is also a troika member: A three-member country committee chaired by Italy, the current presidency; Saudi Arabia, the outgoing presidency, and Indonesia, the future presidency in 2022 to ensure that G20 presidencies work hand-in-hand to achieve consistency and continuity of the group’s agenda.
