The Group of Seven (G7) meeting in Britain started on Friday. At this time the world is battling an epidemic and it is believed that the seven big economic powers of the world will focus on finding a way out of Kovid-19 and all the difficulties caused by it. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also invited Narendra Modi to attend. Modi is not going to Britain, he will be attending it virtually on 12th and 13th June. This is the first time in two years that the leaders of the world’s seven major economic powers will be seen together on one platform. China and Russia are not part of the G7 for different reasons. This time the theme of the meeting is – Build Back Better
Why Russia and not China
Russia: Became a part of it in 1998 and then G7 was called G8. When it annexed Crimea in 2014, its membership was revoked.
China: Despite having the world’s largest population and second largest economy, China is not included in the G7. No clear reason for this was ever given officially. But, it is believed that inequality of per capita income, lack of democracy and media controlled by the government are some of the reasons.
A day before the G7 meeting, US President Joe Biden appeared with Pfizer Company Chief Executive Albert Borella. America and its allies are preparing to give 100 million vaccine doses to the poor and most affected countries of the world.
Which issues to focus on this time
Ministers and officials of the countries involved in the G7 keep meeting throughout the year. This year, before the G7 meetings, the finance ministers of its member countries met. They decided that multinational companies should pay more tax. Kovid recovery, global health system, climate change and trade will also be important issues.
don’t forget the quad
If you look carefully at the countries participating in this G7 meeting, then a China will definitely be seen. Apart from the permanent members, India and Australia have also been invited. The US and Japan are permanent members. That is, quad countries will also be present. China has already been alleging that the Quad is also a military cooperation platform. That is, the antics of China around the world can also be discussed here. These include Kovid-19 origin and lab leak.
On Thursday, there was an 80-minute conversation between Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Before this, Johnson tried to explain something to Biden through documents.
how is the security system
Around 6500 policemen will be deployed. Apart from this, electronic surveillance will also be active. Four places have already been earmarked for the people or organizations protesting against the meeting. A protest place is 115 km away from the meeting place. Apart from this meeting, everyone will be watching the meeting of US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
What is the importance for India
India has not become a permanent member of the UN Security Council. But, its presence on international forums has been powerful in every respect. When Donald Trump was the President, he suggested making the G-7 as G-10 or G-11. But, it was also said that all democratic countries should be in it. That is, they did not want China here. Western countries think that only India can stop China. Therefore, he has been included in this meeting. India can get success on the issue of vaccine. America and other G-7 countries can supply the vaccine directly to him.
