Dominica’s Foreign Minister said that ‘when we got the vaccines, we then made them available to other Caribbean countries.

A country like Mauritius coming to a platform like G20 is an example of this.
Maldives Foreign Minister Ahmed Khalil said that ‘India is going to become the second largest economy in the world in the next 25 years. The world admires India’s commitment.
