The Prime Minister’s ambition is to use the G7 to intensify cooperation between the world’s democratic and technologically advanced nations. To that end, he has invited leaders from Australia, India, South Korea and South Africa to attend as guest countries to deepen the expertise and experience around the table. Between them the 11 leaders represent over 60% of the people living in democracies around the world.
These nations, combined with those in the G7, represent over 2.2 billion people and over half of the world’s economy. Securing agreement among us will have an even greater impact on the world, showing how democratic nations are working together to make their citizens safer and more prosperous.
