The G7 Summit: Politics, Policy and Possible Implications

June 11, 2021

In our latest podcast, Philip Riding, Middle East and Africa Lead Analyst is joined by James Barth, North America Analyst and Dr Guo Yu, Lead Analyst for Asia Pacific, to discuss the G7 Summit in Cornwall.

Leaders of the world's wealthiest economies and major democratic powers (including the EU) have gathered at Cornish seaside town of St. Ives for the 47th summit, which kicks off today. The three-day meeting – US President Joe Biden’s first official foreign trip since his inauguration in January – represents one of the most high-profile events in diplomacy to be held in person since the start of the pandemic. The summit, therefore, serves as an opportunity for the leading advanced economies to discuss important plans and strategy that will undoubtedly have a lasting impact on the post-pandemic world order.
