The Group of Seven is a grouping comprising the world's seven largest so-called advanced economies. They are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA). The European Union (EU) is also represented at the highest level. The UK took on the Presidency of the G7 group of nations in 2021. The Presidency's overarching theme is Building Back Better from the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
In preparation for the Cornwall summit, the UK hosted a video conference of G7 leaders on 19 February 2021.
Leaders from four other countries were invited to take part in the summit as guests. The agenda for the summit includes matters relating to pandemic preparedness and economic recovery; geopolitical challenges and foreign affairs; trade and development; promoting open societies and democratic values; and fighting climate change and protecting the environment. Bilateral talks between the participants in the margins of the meeting also took place. Media outlets reported on informal discussions concerning the post-Brexit relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union, and in particular the Protocol on Northern Ireland (NI Protocol).
