Group of 7 (G7): Countries, Summits, Significance, CriticismPREMIUM 

The 45th G7 summit was held for three days at Biarritz, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a special invitee to this annual summit between the 7 major world economies. This invitation is seen by many as the recognition of India’s growing importance in global politics. Joint communiqué was not issued at the end of this meeting. This shows the growing differences between the member nations and also the growing inefficiency of the G7 in recent times.
