Rome, 15th June.  
Prime Minister Narendra Modi departed for India on Friday after a day-long visit to Italy, where he attended the G7 summit in the Apulia region and held bilateral meetings with several global leaders, including British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Pope Francis.

During an address at the G7 Outreach session, PM Modi emphasized the need to end monopolies in technology to foster an inclusive society. He highlighted the importance of making technology, especially artificial intelligence, more accessible and noted that India is among the first nations to develop a national strategy on AI.

On the sidelines of the summit, PM Modi engaged in discussions with key leaders such as US President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Macron, British Prime Minister Sunak, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Italian Premier Giorgia Meloni, Pope Francis, and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

The bilateral meeting with President Macron was particularly significant as it marked PM Modi’s first official engagement with an international leader since commencing his third term as Prime Minister earlier this month.

In addition to India, Italy extended invitations to leaders from 11 developing countries across Africa, South America, and the Indo-Pacific region to participate in the G7 Summit, underscoring the summit’s inclusive approach to global dialogue.
