Leaders announced the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor after meeting at the G20 summit in New Delhi. The US-backed rail and shipping project is seen as an act to counter Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative.
  The planned economic corridor would link India, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Israel and the EU. The project, described as “a green and digital bridge” across the region, will include a rail link, as well as an electricity cable, a hydrogen pipeline and a high-speed data cable. It would help boost trade, deliver energy resources, improve digital connectivity and normalize the relations between Israel and the Gulf States. But the leaders did not lay out who would be paying for the project.
  The African Union(AU), comprising 55 member countries, has become a permanent member of G20. It now has the same status as the EU — the only regional bloc with a full membership. India’s Prime Minister Modi said the inclusion of the AU will strengthen the voice of the Global South.

 G20 領導人在新德里舉行的峰會中,宣布將打造「印度—中東—歐洲經濟走廊」。這項美國支持的鐵路和航運計畫,被視為抗衡中國的「一帶一路」倡議。
 這條規畫中的經濟走廊將連接印度、沙烏地阿拉伯、阿拉伯聯合大公國、約旦、以色列和歐盟。此項被稱為跨國「綠色數位橋梁」的計畫,將包括一條鐵路、一條電纜、一條氫氣輸送管和一條高速數據電纜。此計畫可望活絡貿易、加速能源輸送、改善數位連線,以及促進以色列與海灣國家關係正常化。但G20 領導人沒有清楚說明誰將為該計畫買單。
