Boris chairs G7

Yesterday, the Prime Minister chaired the first G7 leaders’ meeting of the UK’s presidency – calling on world leaders to back efforts to speed up the development of new vaccines, treatments and tests to help protect the most vulnerable around the world and stop the spread of Covid-19.

  • Coronavirus is a global pandemic that requires a coordinated and collaborative approach from world leaders – ensuring that global vaccination coverage reaches poorer and less developed parts of the world.
  • That is why the Prime Minister used his first meeting as chair of the G7 to encourage the group to look beyond coronavirus to ensure a better response to future infectious diseases whilst also pledging to donate the majority of our surplus vaccines to poorer countries.
  • Britain will continue to use our current position on the world-stage to advocate for countries poorer than ourselves – ensuring that we play our part in the global fight against COVID-19 as we build back better together.
