UK to welcome G7 leaders to Cornish seaside resort in June

Leaders of the world’s biggest economies will meet in Cornwall this June for the 2021 G7 Summit, it has been announced.

The summit is to take place at the English seaside resort of Cabris Bay, Cornwall from 11 to 13 June 2021.

The members of the G7 are the UK, US, Germany, France, Canada, Italy and Japan. Leaders from these countries will be in attendance, though leaders from Australia, India, the European Union and South Korea will also attend the event as guests.

On a website for the Summit shared by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Twitter on Sunday, it is said, “With over 400 miles of coastline, Cornwall’s stunning landscape provides a perfect setting for world leaders to come together and discuss how to respond to global challenges like coronavirus and climate change.”

The summit is expected to boost businesses in Cornwall and the surrounding area, with St Ives, Falmouth and Newquay Airport also set to play a role in the event. 

The summit is expected to be high security and focus on topics including recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic. Mr Johnson tweeted on Sunday, “My goal is to work with our friends and partners to #BuildBackBetter from the coronavirus pandemic and create a fairer, greener and more prosperous future.”

The summit in Cornwall will be the first in-person G7 summit since the Coronavirus pandemic began. Last year’s summit, due to be held in Camp David, Maryland, was cancelled and an alternative event took place online.
