ITALIAN PRESIDENCY OF THE G7

In 2017 Italy takes over the Presidency of the G7, the group of the seven most industrialized countries in the world.

During this exercise over 40 meetings of high-level working groups will be organized and 10 ministerial summits, in addition to that of the Heads of State and Government, will be held in Italy. Particular importance will be borne by the meetings of the "engagement groups" in the field of business, labor, civil society, think tanks, science, women and youth.

In a particularly delicate moment in the international context, the Italian Presidency intends to articulate its program on three pillars:

1) Security for citizens: geopolitical instability, fight against terrorism and violent extremism, migration.

2) Economic, environmental and social sustainability and reducing inequality: Agenda 2030, environmental protection and climate change, food security, inequalities.

3) Innovation, skills and jobs in the age of new production revolution: ICT, reform of educational systems, digital agenda, social protection.
