India needs modern technology from G-7

Amitabh Singh
G7 is a special club of seven countries, which was formed in the 70s. Initially, six countries came together to deal with the problems arising from the oil crisis. Later Canada also joined this group. Then it came to be known as G7 i.e. group of industrial countries. Russia became a member of this group in 1997, due to which it became G8. But in 2014 Russia occupied the Ukrainian region Crimea, after which it was expelled from the group.

Role of India
The world needs a powerful country like India. India is playing an important role in the world through its wisdom, strategic independence and independent foreign policy. The consensus that was formed in the world after the end of the Cold War has been broken by the Russia-Ukraine war and the Israel-Gaza conflict. Because of this, there is an emphasis on meetings and summits between multilateral and smaller groups so that peace, dialogue and cooperation can be promoted in the world.

Global face
India is part of the G7 outreach programme and has participated in 11 meetings. 5 of these have been led by Prime Minister Modi. India has a $3.94 trillion economy, which is bigger than the economies of four G7 countries, the United Kingdom (UK), France, Canada and Italy combined. India has strategic partnerships with the US, UK, France, Japan and Germany. In the last few years, India has become the face of the Global South. It has also led the G20, which is a hub of the Global South and developed countries.

Empowering the Global South
Italian Prime Minister Giordano Meloni said ahead of the G-7 summit that there is a need to strengthen dialogue with the Global South. He also said that the G-7 is not a closed fortress, but it is a proposal of values ​​to be presented to the world. India is an ideal nation in this context.

– India is an important country in the Global South and the world listens to its voice.

– India wants to strengthen its relations with Western countries and is working in this direction.

– Western countries need a strong and reliable ally and India is fully qualified for this.

Developing countries have long criticised the G7, calling it a club of rich countries. Street clashes between anti-globalisation and anti-capitalist activists protesting G7 meetings and the police have been common in the past.

The threat of China
The second view is that security concerns have increased due to China in the Indo-Pacific and the Indian Ocean, so the G-7 needs India's support. Apart from this, China can also become a threat to neighboring countries and the West. That is why Western countries need India. There is also concern about China's growing economic dominance, which the West calls 'overproduction'. Western countries feel that China is also moving forward on the policy of expansionism to promote its economic interests.

solid benefits achieved
So far, India has been getting only intangible benefits from developed countries in terms of leadership of the Global South. India should also demand concrete benefits from these countries. India should say that it needs investment in semiconductors, research in artificial intelligence, critical and advanced technology and large-scale production of consumer goods. China has become so powerful in the world through this path.

basic infrastructure
India has also received some benefits from the G-7. One of these is the India-Middle East Europe Economic Corridor (IMEEEC). It is China's answer to its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The project was initially aimed at connecting the Middle East with Europe, but was later extended to India. It is part of the PGII (Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment), which aims to develop major projects to develop infrastructure and transport corridors.

talk with
Many foreign policy experts say that India should openly support the West. But India should avoid this. India can benefit only by promoting national interests. It should avoid being told by the Western media and local Western experts that it is a force to beat China. It is true that India has its own problems with China. There is a long-standing border dispute between the two countries. But these should not be exaggerated beyond a limit. We need the G-7 and the West as much as they need us. National interest should always be supreme.
