India will be looking to push the rupee trade agenda in the G-20 meetings it is organizing as part of its ongoing presidency of the forum, a senior bureaucrat said on Monday.
Commerce Secretary Sunil Barthwal said rupee trade will help with countries whose currencies are under pressure.
India has been successful in forging agreements with 18 countries for settling trade in the Indian rupee amid currency volatility.
The issue of rupee trade is not directly linked with the G-20 forum, which India will preside over this time around.
About 100 delegates from various G-20 countries, special invitee countries and international organisations will be attending the three-day meeting in Delhi.
India is also proposing reforms on the world trade organisation (WTO) front, the Commerce Secretary said, adding that the same will be a part of the agenda.
The delegates will be visiting the Bharat Diamond Bourse as part of the meeting, Barthwal said, adding that over 90 per cent of diamonds are processed in India.
