  As summit ends, G-7 urged to deliver on vaccines, climate FALMOUTH, England (AP) — The Group of Seven leaders aim to end their first summit in two years with a punchy set of promises Sunday, including vaccinating the world against coronavirus, making huge corporations pay their fair share of taxes and tackling climate change with a blend of technology and money. They want to show that international cooperation is back after the upheavals caused both by the pandemic and the unpredictability of former U.S. President Donald Trump.

This weekend, world leaders from some of the most influential countries will meet for the G7 Summit and discuss major global issues.

Hosted this year by the UK, the gathering will take place from 11-13 June in the seaside resort of Carbis Bay in Cornwall.

Here’s exactly where it’s happening, why the location was selected and how travel in the region will be affected.

Where will the G7 summit be held?

Specifically, the G7 event will be held at the Carbis Bay Hotel, which prides itself in being recognised as one of Cornwall’s “premier waterside hotels”.

  Allies hope to bond, look beyond virus at G-7 summit in UK LONDON (AP) — There will be roundtable meetings, one-on-one chats and a group photo against a picturesque backdrop. When leaders of some of the world’s richest nations meet Friday at the English seaside for a three-day Group of Seven summit, much of the choreography will be familiar. But the world has changed dramatically. Since the G-7 last met two years ago, the coronavirus pandemic has killed more than 3.7 million people and decimated economies with lockdowns and layoffs. A planned G-7 meeting in the United States last year was postponed, then canceled.So when British Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomes U.S.

Over a 125-year history, the hotel says it has hosted “guests from all over the world” including some of the “nation’s finest writers”.

Its impressive 38-room build is a part of an estate that comprises 125 acres. The “Main House”, “Lannear Farm” and “Old School House” are all part of the Carbis Bay estate.

The luxury hotel offers spa treatments and wedding packages in a “British Paradise” where it even has a “privately owned 25-acre Blue Flag beach.”

According to the official G7 website, St Ives, Falmouth and Newquay airport will also play a key role in the summit.

Following last year’s cancellation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this will be the first in-person G7 Leaders’ Summit in almost two years.

Why Cornwall?

The choice of a coastal setting is to emphasise the “beautiful, historic and innovative region” to the world.

Alongside the county’s natural seaside landscapes, the Government’s website also describes the region as a “powerhouse for green innovation”, making it an ideal setting for focusing on the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

Visit Cornwall estimates the total economic impact to be £50 million for the county, including an increase in future tourism.
