Know what the G-7 is. What is the effect of its decision?
When was G-7 formed, what is the situation in the world?
G-7 is a group of 7 developed countries with 31% share in the total GDP of the world. Only 10% of the world’s population lives in these. While the share of international carbon dioxide emissions is 21%. The UK, Germany, France, Canada, USA, Italy and Japan are its members. It was started on 25 March 1973. Then 6 members were involved. Canada joined it the following year. In 1998, Russia also joined it. Then it became the G-8. Each country in turn presides over this group.
Why is China not a member?
China is not included in the G-7 countries. The reason is that per capita income is still very low in terms of GDP in China, because their population is high. That is why China cannot be a part of it. India is also not a part of this group for the same reason.
