This video was taken during the G20 summit in Japan in 2019
A video has been viewed tens of thousands of times in multiple social media posts that claim it shows Indonesia's President Joko Widodo at the 2021 G20 summit in the Italian capital of Rome. The posts claim he became the "central figure" at the summit. The claim is false. In fact, the video shows the Indonesian president at the G20 summit in 2019, when the Japanese city of Osaka hosted the event.
The video was shared in this tweet on November 1, 2021. It has been viewed more than 180,000 times.
The tweet reads: "Morning spirit. Special reporter Finance Minister Sri Mulyani interviewed President @jokowi, who became the central figure of the G20 summit because Indonesia will hold the presidency of the G20, replacing Italy. Live report from Rome!"
Indonesia is set to host the G20 summit in 2022 on the island province of Bali.
However, the claim is false.
A reverse image search on Yandex, followed by keyword searches on Google, found this video, dated June 29, 2019, on the official Instagram account of Finance Minister Sri Mulyani.

Translated to English, the first three paragraphs of the video's caption says: "The second day the leaders of the G20 summit discussed Inequalities and Realizing Inclusive and Sustainable World.
"I took the time to vlog with Indonesian President Joko Widodo @jokowi.
"Apart from that, we also discussed the importance of Women Empowerment."
The post ends with: "Osaka, June 29, 2019".
At the video's 49-second mark, the words "G20 OSAKA SUMMIT 2019" can be seen in the background.
