G7 summit: When is it and what is going to be on the agenda in Cornwall?


T

he G7 summit is to take place on British soil for the first time in eight years, this weekend in Cornwall.

The world’s leaders will converge on the tourist town of Carbis Bay to thrash out the global response to key issues such as the Covid pandemic and the climate crisis.

We take a look at the main questions ahead of this year’s event:

The G7 summit is taking place in Carbis Bay, near St Ives, in Cornwall.

It is the first time the UK has hosted the gathering since 2013, when David Cameron welcomed the world’s leaders to Northern Ireland.

It is the seventh time the UK has hosted the G7 (the first was hosted in London in 1977), with Germany set to host next year.

The 47th G7 summit is set to take place over this coming weekend, with proceedings kicking off on Friday 11th June and running through to Sunday.

It is the first time the G7 leaders have convened in person since the 2019 edition which was held in Biarritz, France.

Last year, during the coronavirus pandemic, the meeting was hosted via video conferencing, much to the irritation of the then US president Donald Trump, whose country was due to host the event.

Who is attending the G7 summit?

As ever, the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States will be in attendance.

Alongside them, the presidents of the European Commission and European Council are permanently welcomed to the summit.
