The G7 summit begins, focused on the pandemic and the climate crisis

The G7 leaders’ summit begins this Friday in Cornwall, southwest England, where until Sunday the leaders of the nations with the world’s strongest economies will address, among other issues, the post-pandemic recovery and the fight against the climate emergency.

The group for this edition of the G7 includes the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Canada, Japan, and the European Union.

The first plenary session of the summit for this Friday is dedicated to the global recovery after the coronavirus pandemic.

The G7 is expected to commit at this meeting to donate 1 billion vaccines to developing countries to advance global immunization.

The US has advanced that it will donate 500 million vaccines, while the United Kingdom has pledged to deliver another 100 million doses.

On Friday night, the leaders and their companions will attend a gala dinner with Queen Elizabeth II in what is known as the Eden Project, an environmental space of 50 hectares with large transparent domes in which different terrestrial climates are recreated.

“I have told the prime minister that we have something in common: we both married beyond our means,” Biden said, to which Johnson replied that he was not going to disagree.
