"Usually day-2, sometimes there is no declaration and the host country issues its own statement," Investment Minister of Saudi Arabia Khalid A. Al Falih said here at an event.

He said that the consensus was reached despite the world facing all types of challenges.

Khalid appreciated the leadership of India led by the Indian Prime Minister.

Referring to the use of the country's name as 'Bharat' instead of India, the Saudi minister said that his country always knew India as 'Bharat' and "it is part of your constitution".

He added that both countries are leading G20 members in terms of economic performance.

"Both are growing at fast rates....while everybody was worried about recession," he added.
