Cornwall welcomes G7 international summit news

Cornwall Council has welcomed the news that the Duchy is to host the international G7 leaders’ summit in June.

The major three-day international event will see leaders from the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the US, as well as invited leaders from Australia, India, and South Korea attend.

It will host world leaders at Carbis Bay, with neighbouring St Ives and other sites in Cornwall, such as Falmouth, hosting international delegates and media – with organisers determined to make this an event for all residents in Cornwall to experience and share.

‘This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the best of Cornwall and the UK on the world stage, and to build our strength and prosperity at home,’ said council leader, Cllr Julian German.

‘For those reasons we are determined that this event delivers a lasting legacy for our residents, inspires our young people and shows how we can play our part in bringing the world together after the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic – and bringing together all parts of the UK together, leaving no-one and nowhere behind.

‘We want a lasting legacy that maximises inward investment, translating our moment on the global stage into trade,’ added Cllr German.

‘A legacy that helps Cornwall bounce forward and make its full contribution to the country’s ambitions in areas like space and satellite, floating offshore wind and other sources of clean energy, and globally significant geo-resources including lithium to power our future.’

Mark Duddridge, the chair of the local enterprise partnership, added: ‘Cornwall’s economy is quickly evolving into one of huge significance to the challenges of the time most notably in the delivery of clean energy from our unique geology and location.

‘Underpinned by our digital connectivity and creative expertise our traditional industries are developing their offer to deliver more to their customers whilst supporting the recovery of our climate and ecology.

‘We welcome the opportunity to showcasing the new Cornwall to visitors from around the world and sharing our excitement for the changes that are now happening around us.’
