The G7 Group was established in 1975 as an informal forum bringing together the leaders of the world’s major industrialized nations (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States).
Over the years, the annual G7 summits have become a platform for setting the direction of multilateral discourse and policy responses to global challenges. The G7 complements the role of the G20, a group generally regarded as the framework for global economic coordination.
