UK to host G7 Summit in Cornwall from 11 – 13th June 2021
India, Australia and South Korea are invited as guest countries
Prime Ministers and Presidents from the world’s leading democracies will come together in Cornwall in June to address shared challenges, from beating Coronavirus and tackling climate change, to ensuring that people everywhere can benefit from open trade, technological change and scientific discovery.
The G7 – which is made up of the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the USA and the EU – is the only forum where the world’s most influential and open societies and advanced economies are brought together for close-knit discussions.
The Prime Minister will use the first in-person G7 summit in almost two years to ask leaders to seize the opportunity to build back better from Coronavirus, uniting to make the future fairer, greener and more prosperous.
The Prime Minister’s ambition is to use the G7 to intensify co-operation between the world’s democratic and technologically advanced nations. To that end, he has invited leaders from Australia, India and South Korea to attend as guest countries to deepen the expertise and experience around the table. Between them, the 10 leaders represent over 60% of the people living in democracies around the world.
The choice of Cornwall as the location for the Summit will mean the eyes of the world are on the beautiful, historic and innovative region. The leaders’ meeting itself will be held in the coastal town of Carbis Bay, supported by neighbouring St Ives and other towns across the region. The whole of Cornwall will reap the benefits of hosting the G7.
