Business leaders of the G7 countries make proposals to address key world challenges

“We operate in an increasingly complex and challenging environment both politically and economically, in Europe, and around the world. Together business and governments can deliver solutions to 21st-century challenges such as global trade, climate change, digitalisation and inequalities”. This was the key message conveyed by BusinessEurope President Pierre Gattaz to French President Emmanuel Macron on 3 July. The meeting took place in the context of the B7 summit organised by Medef with the participation of business leaders from all G7 economies. They gathered in Aix-en-Provence for 2 days of discussions on trade, climate change, inequalities and cybersecurity.  “The digital transformation is making our lives easier, but an increasing concern is cybersecurity; we need coordinated international action now”, Gattaz said during a dialogue on digital transformation. The participating business organisations issued a joint statement at the end of the B7 summit.
