Charlevoix in June, Johannesburg in July and Buenos Aires at the end of November – these are the planned 2018 summits of the G7, BRICS and G20 countries. This year, some of their economically smaller members hold the presidencies of the three groups: Canada (G7), South Africa (BRICS) and Argentina (G20). In Justin Trudeau, Cyril Ramaphosa and Mauricio Macri, the three groups’ chairs are Heads of Government who are all engaged in ambitious processes of reform at home and a policy of openness towards the world. At the G7 and G20 summits, Trudeau and Macri will be facing the challenge of upholding openness and multilateralism in the face of their big US neighbour, too. The G7, BRICS and G20 summits in 2018 will also be crucial to the success of the United Nations’ (UN) summit in 2019 on implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This agenda was adopted in 2015 by all heads of state and of government of the world as a plan for people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnership.
