  • Japan-Prime Minister Shinzo Abe
  • United Kingdom– Prime Minister Boris Johnson

As of 2018, the seven countries involved represent 58% of the global net wealth ($317 trillion) and more than 46% of the global gross domestic product (GDP) based on nominal values, and more than 32% of the global GDP based on purchasing power parity.

The annual G7 leaders’ summit is attended by the heads of government. The member country holding the G7 presidency is responsible for organizing and hosting the year’s summit.
