Upon his arrival in Bali on November 13 night, PM Modi was received a traditional welcome.

"Grateful to the Indian community for the warm welcome in Bali!" the prime minister tweeted.

The 17th edition of the G20 Summit will extensively focus on key issues of global concern under the theme of 'Recover Together, Recover Stronger'.
