At the top of the G7 Summit at Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps next week, President Biden will meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

President Biden will participate in seven working sessions at the G7 Summit in Germany, ranging from one on the global economy to sessions on infrastructure to climate and energy security and Ukraine. 

“I think that there’s going to be a lot of focus on what are steps that each country is taking domestically, what steps can be taken together in order to address the pressures that we’re seeing on the energy security front in order to address the challenges that we’re seeing around food security, including for a number of lower-income and vulnerable countries,” a senior White House official told The Pavlovic Today.

At G7 Summit, Biden will roll out a concrete set of proposals to “increase pressure on Russia,” according to a senior White House official. 

  • Biden will address the impact of the war in Ukraine on prices rising at home and all over the world, including on energy security and food security.
  • Biden will discuss with the G7 leaders their cooperation on economic issues, cyberspace and quantum, and, in particular, the challenges posed by China.
  • Biden will officially launch the global infrastructure partnership. 

At G7, President Zelenskyy will join leaders to discuss the situation in Ukraine. 

“The United States, as you have seen, is continuing to roll out additional tranches of security assistance to Ukraine, with the last announcement last week of a billion dollars in security assistance, and an expectation that we will have, in the near term, additional tranches of security assistance to provide,” senior White House official confirmed. 

The G7 has also invited Argentina, India, Indonesia, Senegal, and South Africa to participate in select sessions as guest countries.
