The G7 website states “In past years the G7 has taken action to strengthen the global economy and combat tax evasion, save 27 million lives from AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and supported the education of millions of children in the poorest countries.
“In 2015 its members led the way in helping secure the historic Paris Climate Agreement to limit global emissions.”
Meetings are also held between ministers of the G7 countries throughout the year.
