This year, the G7 summit will take place from 26 to 27 May in Ise-Shima (Japan). The European Union will be represented by the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, and the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk. The main topics on the agenda, as set out by this year's Japan presidency, are the global economy, investment, trade, the refugee crisis, climate change and energy, the fight against terrorism, foreign policy and development. Leaders will also discuss several global health policy issues, gender equality and women’s rights (...) Traditionally, a number of third country heads of state and government, as well as chairpersons of international organisations, are invited to participate in parts of the summit. From ASEAN member states, the heads of state and government of Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Papua New Guinea are invited. In addition, the President of Chad – the current Chairperson of the African Union – and, from the international organisations, the chairpersons of the UN, OECD, ADB, IMF and the World Bank are invited. As the Ise-Shima summit is the first summit held in Asia in eight years, the Japanese hosts have indicated that the topic of one of the outreach meetings will focus on Asia. In another outreach session, participants will address the Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on Africa.

Leaders attending next week's Port Moresby summit of the Africa Caribbean and Pacific group are to consider a review of the organisation's relevance. Vanuatu's Ambassador to the European Union, Roy Mickey Joy, said the meeting would feature a briefing on a report by an Eminent Persons Group considering if there were relevant grounds to continue with the ACP as a group. The review of the groups future is timely as the European Union Africa Caribbean Pacific Cotonou Agreement is to cease in 2020. The ACP group includes 14 Pacific Island countries plus Timor-Leste. Mr Joy confirmed that Vanuatu's Prime Minister Charlot Salwai and Foreign Minister Bruno Leingkone would attend the ACP meeting in the Papua New Guinea capital.
