BENGALURU -- Finance ministers and central bank governors from the Group of 20 nations are set to gather near the southern Indian tech hub of Bengaluru on Friday, with the first anniversary of the Ukraine war looming and the debts of developing countries high on the agenda.

This is the first major conference of India's G-20 presidency, and the world is watching how Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government will guide a global grouping that includes geopolitical archrivals the U.S. and China, as well as Russia.
