G7 Leaders' Summit 2021:
Since the global Covid-19 pandemic has hit, the first in-person global summit will be held soon this month in the United Kingdon (UK) as the country will host leaders from all across the world. While the G7 Summit is being considered as a basal for the much-awaited COP26 UN Climate Conference, a summit that was canceled last year will now be held in Glasgow in November 2021.
Since the UK is going to host the G7 Summit this year, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be the president of the G7.
So, in the article below, let’s gain more insights on the scheduled G7 Summit.
The G7 stands for the Group of 7, which includes the world’s seven largest and the most influential societies and advanced economies. The group includes the USA, Canada, UK, Japan, France, Germany, and Italy, while the EU participates in every discussion as a guest member.
Found in 1976, the quondam G6 turned into G7 when the PM of Canada was invited to join the group of the world’s largest and most advanced economies.
Considering the fact that China is one of the largest economies presently, but is not a part of G7 due to its relatively low level of wealth per person, which clearly states that the country is not as advanced economy as the other members of the G7 are.
As per the recent reports, the G7 Summit will be from 11th to 13th June 2021 in the United Kingdom (UK).
The countries which are a part of the G7 Summit are the USA, Canada, UK, Japan, France, Germany, and Italy, while the EU participates in every discussion as a guest member.
Some of the major topics which are to be discussed in the G7 Summit 2021 are:
Promoting prosperity by championing free and fair trade
Leading global recovery from Covid-19 while strengthening resilience against the contingent pandemics
Tackling climate change and preserving the planet’s biodiversity
Championing shared values
It must be noted that PM Narendra Modi from India has been invited to attend the G7 Summit 2021 in the UK. But considering the severe second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, PM Modi will not fly to the UK to attend the event, instead will join the meet virtually.
