India is hosting its first G-20 summit starting September 9 in New Delhi, where leaders of the world’s top economies will gather to discuss major international economic issues.

The G-20 members represent 85% of global gross domestic product, 75% of international trade, and two-thirds of the world’s population, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

As Xi and Putin shrink from the global stage, the U.S. has an excellent opportunity to reclaim the mantle of global leadership, helping other G-20 nations recognize and promote the value of transparency, development, and open trade supported by democratic rules and principles.
