G-7 Finance Chiefs to Meet in U.K. May 10-11

November 29, 2012

(Correct to say no venue for meeting announced.)

Group of Seven finance ministers and central bankers will meet in the U.K. on May 10-11, Britain’s Treasury said.

While the Group of 20, which includes emerging markets, has become the main forum for international policy discussion, U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said in a statement the smaller group of rich economies “remains an important institution and a key forum in which to grapple with the challenges that face the global economy.”

The meeting will come a month before Group of Eight leaders meet in Northern Ireland. Details of venue for the finance talks will be announced at a later date, the Treasury said.
