Govts need to be inclusive, clean, and transparent: Modi at WGS 2024


Governments must collaborate and learn from each other to address future challenges, PM Modi says

Reiterating his mantra of ‘minimum government, maximum governance,’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the need of the hour is for governments to be inclusive, clean, and transparent. 
He has also emphasised that governments must prioritise Ease of Living, Ease of Justice, Ease of Mobility, Ease of Innovation and Ease of Doing Business in their approach to public service.
Prime Minister Modi was speaking at the World Governments Summit in Dubai, UAE, where he was the guest of honour, on Wednesday (February 14, 2024). He was delivering the special keynote address on the theme of the Summit – “Shaping the Future Governments”. 
Referring to the interconnected nature of the world, he said governments must collaborate and learn from each other to address future challenges.
Prime Minister Modi shared the Indian experience on how the country had leveraged digital technology to further welfare, inclusivity and sustainability, and called for a human- centric approach to governance. He also underlined India’s focus on people’s participation, last-mile-delivery and women-led development to achieve an inclusive society.

He also highlighted India’s steadfast commitment to Climate Change action and called for people to join Mission LiFE (Lifestyle for Environment) to create a sustainable world.
During his address, Prime Minister Modi elaborated on the leadership role played by India as the chair of G-20 last year, on a wide range of issues and challenges facing the world. In this context, he highlighted the efforts made by India to bring development concerns facing the Global South to the centre-stage of global discourse.

Calling for the reform of multilateral institutions, he pushed for greater voice for the Global South in its decision making. India, he stressed, will continue to contribute to global progress based on its role as a “Vishwa Bandhu”.
Prime Minister Modi had attended the World Governments Summit in 2018, also as Guest of Honour. The Summit this time saw participation of 20 world leaders, including 10 Presidents and 10 Prime Ministers. Governments and delegates from over 120countries were represented at the global gathering.
