The Conservative Group on Cornwall Council has welcomed the announcement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson that Cornwall will be hosting the prestigious G7 Summit.
The G7 is one of the highest profile summits in the international calendar, bringing some of the world’s most powerful leaders together.
As the presidency holder, the UK will direct the agenda for the G7 in 2021, choosing to focus on issues that matter and will help the UK and the world build back better from coronavirus.
The G7 has an opportunity to lead the global recovery from coronavirus: protecting peoples’ health, creating quality jobs and tackling climate change.
Commenting, Conservative Group Leader and Cornwall Councillor for Lelant and Carbis Bay Linda Taylor said:
“What an incredible announcement from our Prime Minister and I am delighted to see that he has recognised what Cornwall has to offer by confirming the G7 Summit will be held in our Duchy.”
“This will be an incredible opportunity to show the world all the wonderful things that Cornwall has to offer as we look to come out of his awful pandemic that has blighted our lives over the past year.”
“Putting Cornwall at the forefront of the global recovery effort and at the centre of this Conservative Government’s levelling up agenda by showcasing us on the global stage.”
“We look forward to working locally and at County Hall to ensure we do our bit in making this a success.”
