What is the G7?

The G7 stands for the Group of Seven.

It is an intergovernmental organisation, whose members are all countries with “advanced economies and open societies”.

Leaders of the member countries meet regularly to discuss their shared values and goals, with the main event known as the G7 Summit, which usually takes place once a year.

The G7 website states: “In past years the G7 has taken action to strengthen the global economy and combat tax evasion, save 27 million lives from AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and supported the education of millions of children in the poorest countries.

“In 2015 its members led the way in helping secure the historic Paris Climate Agreement to limit global emissions.”

Meetings are also held between ministers of the G7 countries throughout the year.
