G20 leaders have emphasised the need of international cooperation and continued discussions on international governance for artificial intelligence (AI), as well as the need for a safe, trusted, accountable, and inclusive digital public infrastructure (DPI) for service delivery and innovation.

Recognising DPI’s significance in societal service delivery, the G20 New Delhi Leaders’ declaration welcomed the G20 framework for DPI systems, which is a voluntary and suggested framework for the development, deployment, and governance of DPI.

According to the G20 declaration, DPI that is safe, secure, trusted, accountable, and inclusive while respecting human rights, personal data, privacy, and intellectual property rights may create resilience and facilitate service delivery and innovation.

The declaration also draws attention to building safety, security, resilience, and trust in the digital economy. Further, it also welcomed India’s commitment to establish and operate a Global Digital Public Infrastructure Repository (GDPIR), a virtual repository of DPI that will be voluntarily shared by G20 nations and others.

However, it also promised to promote responsible AI in order to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
