Keynote by Wolfgang Schmidt, Head of Chancellery : Prospects for the G7 Elmau Summit – Think7 Summit

Russia’s war against Ukraine put the agenda of the German G7 presidency to a test. The G7 faces the challenge to respond to immediate challenges such as international security or rising energy and food prices while not losing sight of the medium to long term but not less urgent challenges as climate change mitigation and adaptation or socio-economic inequalities. In his keynote the Head of the Federal Chancellery Wolfgang Schmidt talks about the prospects for the G7 Summit taking place in Elmau, Germany, on 26 to 28 June 2022.
