The Sikkim government reviewed preparations for the upcoming G20 events that will take place in the state later this week, according to an official. The Business20 meet is scheduled for Thursday, followed by the StartUp20 on March 18 and 19.

During the review meeting held at the Tashiling secretariat on Tuesday, Sikkim Chief Secretary VB Pathak praised the dedicated efforts of different departments towards hosting the events. Pathak noted that the global events would serve as a valuable resource for upcoming entrepreneurs in Sikkim by offering them substantial benefits and takeaways.

Pathak also briefed officials about the arrangements being made for the events and emphasized the roles and responsibilities assigned to various departments. Over 80 delegates from 20 countries will participate in the two programs being organized as part of India’s G20 presidency.

Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang expressed his honour to host the two meetings, saying, “The government and the Sikkimese people wholeheartedly welcome all the dignitaries to our beloved state.” 

He unveiled a monument with the insignia of Rabdentse, the second capital of the former kingdom of Sikkim, at the MG Marg in Gangtok. The monument will serve as the celebration point for the two events, according to an official.

The chief minister urged people to take responsibility for preserving public properties. The state capital has been decked up for the two events, and the roadside buildings from Pakyong to Gangtok — around 26 km — have been given a fresh coat of paint.
