Professor Linda du Plessis, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Planning And Campus Operations), North-West University, South Africa, while praising the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said, “PM Modi is a visionary leader and if we have a leader with a vision which people support and trust and are willing to invest in that vision and ready to put all the strategies towards it, that makes a huge difference. Investing in what the Prime Minister stands for can make a huge difference in empowering people.”

Prof. Nanda Bahadur Singh, Vice-Chancellor, Mid-West University Surkhet in Nepal, said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not only the leader of India but of the Nations across the world, in particular the leader of Global South. PM Modi has given new impetus to the World Community through India’s Presidency of G20 that focused on addressing various global issues. He has inspired the idea of ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’ across the world and advocated the need to understand the fact that despite being separate Nations, we are all interconnected.”

While speaking on the second day of the Global Summit, Chancellor Chandigarh University & NID Foundation Chief Patron Satnam Singh Sandhu said, “India’s momentous G-20 presidency under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reshaped the global order.

PM Modi promoted multilateralism – which means that the world should not be dominated by one or two powers.”

Dr. Md. Sabur Khan, Founder and Chairman, Daffodil International University, Bangladesh, said, “The vision of India, PM Narendra Modi, and even the G20 has focused on the need to develop a platform that contributes to the society.
