France releases new press kit on G7 priorities and agenda
France has released its priorities and important dates of its G7 2019 presidency in a new press kit. The 2019 G7 will focus on inequality, in particular sustainable development, women's empowerment, global health, climate change, peace, and Africa. The press kit also details France's vision for a renewed partnership with Africa, which will consist of a partnership on jobs creation and economic growth, as well as an initiative with G5 countries to increase support to the 'Sahel Alliance' on education and health.
A range of key ministerial meetings—focused on gender equality, and health, social, foreign and economic policy—take place before the official summit in Biarritz from August 24-26, with further details available in the press kit.
