Other issuesEdit

Change in presidencyEdit

Indonesia's presidency in actual order will be in 2023, with India's in 2022. However, due to the Indonesia's 2023 presidency of ASEAN, a significant regional organization, Indonesia requested to the Government of India to switch presidencies. India agreed to the swap, and hence Indonesia held the presidency in 2022.[15]

Russia and UkraineEdit

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, some countries called for Russian president Vladimir Putin to be excluded from the G20. In March 2022, Polish economic development minister Piotr Nowak said that he had presented a proposal to exclude Russia in meetings with the United States,[16] which United States president Joe Biden subsequently indicated support for.[17] China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Wang Wenbin rejected these calls, saying that no member had the right to remove another country as member.[18] Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the group should "re-evaluate" Russia's participation.[19] Although previous Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison stated he would not attend a summit which included Putin, his successor Anthony Albanese indicated that he would attend the conference regardless of Russia's presence.[20]

The Indonesian government is attempting to keep the Russian invasion of Ukraine off of the meeting's agenda. Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said her country's government would consider the views and suggestions of other members but that summit is meant to focus on pandemic and economic recovery.[21]

In April 2022, United States Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen said she will not participate in sessions at the Bali summit which include Russian delegates.[22][23] At the 2nd Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governor Meeting several weeks later, various finance officials including Yellen, President of the European Central Bank Christine Lagarde, Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, and Ukrainian Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko walked out when a Russian delegate began to speak at the event.[22][24] At a press conference several days later, Freeland said that Canada wanted Russia removed from G20, and that Canadian delegates would not take part in meetings that included Russia.[25] She said the removal of Russia was a significant topic of conversation among the delegates at the meetings, though there was not unanimity that Russia should be removed.[25] Indonesia's President Joko Widodo later invited President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, to the conference, while Putin confirmed in a phone call with Widodo that he would also attend the conference.[13]
