From June 11 to June 13, 2021, Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide attended the G7 Cornwall Summit held in Cornwall, United Kingdom.

This was the first face-to-face G7 summit since the beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic. The leaders agreed to work together as the G7 to overcome COVID-19, to build back better, and to promote open, democratic economies and societies based on international cooperation and multilateralism.

The G7 leaders had candid discussions under the overall theme of “Build Back Better” as advocated by the G7 Chair, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson. With the participation of outreach countries and international organizations, they discussed global health including the current response to COVID-19, climate and nature, and open societies.

As a summary of the three days’ discussions, the G7 Summit Communiqué was released, along with three Annexes and other documents.

Prime Minister Suga served as the lead speaker for some sessions, actively contributing to the G7 discussions, and led candid discussions among leaders on key issues, including the response to COVID-19 and global health, the global economy and free trade, climate change, and regional affairs.
