UK to host 1st in-person G7 summit in 2 years in June

The UK, as the current Group of 7 (G7) president, will host the group’s first in-person summit in almost two years in June.


The UK, as the current Group of 7 (G7) president, will host the group’s first in-person summit in almost two years in June.

The summit will take place in the southeastern county of Cornwall from 11-13 June 2021. World leaders will be addressing shared challenges, from beating the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and tackling climate change, to ensuring greater global benefit from open trade, technological change and scientific discovery.

UK Prime Minster Boris Johnson will use the summit to ask leaders to seize the opportunity to build back better from the global health crisis, uniting to make the future fairer, greener and more prosperous.

The G7, which is made up of the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the US, and the EU, is the only forum where the world’s most influential societies and advanced economies are brought together for close-knit discussions.

Johnson’s ambition is to use the G7 to intensify cooperation between member states. With this in mind, he has invited leaders from Australia, India, and South Korea to attend as guest countries to deepen the expertise and experience around the table.

These nations, combined with those in the G7, represent 2.2 billion people and over half of the world’s economy. Securing agreement among them will have an even greater impact on the world, showing how nations are working together to make their citizens safer and more prosperous.

Johnson said, “The coronavirus is doubtless the most destructive force we have seen for generations and the greatest test of the modern world order we have experienced. It is only right that we approach the challenge of building back better by uniting with a spirit of openness to create a better future.”

The year 2021 is a crucial one for the UK’s role in international leadership. In addition to the G7 Summit, the UK will assume the Presidency of the UN Security Council, in February, and later this year it will host COP26 in Glasgow.

In past years, the G7 has taken action to strengthen the global economy, save 27 million lives from AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and supported the education of millions of children in the poorest countries. In 2015 its members led the way in helping secure the historic Paris Climate Agreement to limit global emissions.
