UK Economic Briefing G7 Edition: Competition or Cooperation?

LIVE WEBINAR | UK Economic Briefing G7 Edition: Competition or Cooperation?

Tuesday 8th June, 9:00AM – 10:00AM BST

9:00AM – 10:00AM BST / 6:00PM – 7:00PM AEDT

On 11th – 13th June, the UK will host the G7 Summit in Cornwall with G7 Heads of Government including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and US President Joe Biden. Also joining the Summit will be three guest leaders including Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

The big three priorities on the table will be:

  • Tackling the ongoing global pandemic
  • Driving global economic recovery that builds back better and
  • Addressing the climate and biodiversity challenge.

Set within the context of a shifting global order, national pressures and increasing polarisation between the USA and China, the big question emerging from the G7 is whether these three complex challenges will become arenas for global cooperation or competition.

Join our expert speakers to discuss this, likely outcomes of the G7 Summit and what it will mean for the global economy and business.
