The G7 was created in 1975 as an informal forum uniting the leaders of the world’s largest industrialized countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Great Britain and the United States).
Over the years, the annual G7 summits have grown to become a venue for setting the tone of multilateral talks and political responses to global challenges.
The G7 complements the role of the G20, a group generally considered to be the basis for global economic coordination.
