The Railway Minister today chaired the emerging economies group meeting at the G-20 sherpa meet which was attended by China, Brazil, Russia, Argentina, Indonesia, South Africa among other countries.

Referring to the black money issue, he said, "Our PM mission of removing black money from global economy highlighted. We want automatic info share."

"Our PM wants youth employment, climate finance, clean energy access, infra finance, equitable global trade, G20 skill for our youth," he tweeted.
