So, what is really the point of the G7? It is a format that is entirely unrepresentative of anything on the global stage. The seven supposedly major industrial nations no longer even represent that point. They cover no more than 30% of global GDP and less than 10% of the world’s population.
I can see why Russia prefers to utilise the the more representative G20 format where it is quite influential. Which is why I guess certain G7 nations want Russia back in the G7 fold.
Not going to happen, without appropriate changes being made to the format.
