The conversations are likely to focus on inclusive, equitable and sustainable growth; LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment), women empowerment, digital public infrastructure and tech-enabled development in areas ranging from health and agriculture.

Women-led development will be a priority in the G20 agenda, Modi said.
