The conference will witness deliberations on four topics

In a statement, the PMO further said that the conference will also witness deliberations on four topics: Vocal for Local, International Year of Millets, G20: Role of States, and Emerging Technologies. Meanwhile, best practices from the states and Union Territories (UTs), under each theme, will be presented so that they can learn from each other, it added.

The outcome of three virtual conferences which were earlier held with states and Union Territories will also be presented at this conference.
