HYDERABAD: India’s Chief Coordinator for G20 Presidency Harsh Vardhan Shringla on Saturday said G20 partners agreed that robust digital infrastructure plays a major role in achieving multiple national goals.

“The G20 agreed that robust digital infrastructure plays a major role in achieving multiple national goals. Investing in digital infrastructure can bring in significant savings & productivity gains for the government in the long term,” Harsh Shringla said while speaking at the Knowledge & Experience Exchange Programmes For Emerging Economies of The Global South held in Hyderabad.

In his inaugural address, Shringla highlighted India’s financial inclusion success story and the way it has transformed the lives of Indians.

He also addressed participants from over 40 countries and regional organisations from the Global South on India’s experience in financial inclusion.

Recalling PM Modi’s address at the opening session of the meeting of G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (FMCBG), Shringla said that the G20 will focus on the most vulnerable people of the world.

He stated that robust digital public infrastructure plays a major role in achieving multiple national goals.

These include economic growth, improved innovation and competition, financial inclusion, productivity gains, financial stability, digital sovereignty, and access to services such as healthcare, credit and education.

Shringla further said that India’s Unified Payments Interface (UPI) System is an example of how digital payments in public infrastructure have allowed an entire ecosystem of digital payments to flourish.

“The unique feature of India’s digital architecture is that it is open source, that it is owned by public institutions and backed by the Reserve Bank of India and not by private monopolies,” The India-Singapore Initiative of linking India’s UPI with Singapore’s pay now for payments across national borders was an important development and could be emulated in many other cases to provide for increasing interoperability of financial systems in the days to come, agreement and the governance of interoperability and the globalized system is going to be very important.
