G7 Summit in Bavaria, Germany

The heads of state and government of the USA, Canada, the UK, France, Italy, Japan and Germany will hold their G7 Summit on 7. and 8. June. This time the Summit is located in the attractive scenery of the Wetterstein mountains in Upper Bavaria which provide a beautiful backdrop to Schloss Elmau, a suitable venue for the meeting of the heads of the G7.

Thanks so much, Angela. Unfortunately I think that the meeting will bring much issues. I also think about the immense costs. I have been there last autumn and you don't believe how many works they did at this time for the safety of the leaders this year - and they will meet only two days.
