The G-7, which unites the largest Western nations (Great Britain, Italy, Canada, the United States, Germany, France and Japan), holds its annual summits with a view to discussing topical economic and political issues, working out agreed-upon anti-crisis decisions and defining ways of overcoming mutual contradictions.

The first G-7 summit was held November 1975 in Rambouillet, France, on the latter's initiative and was attended by the leaders of six nations. The Canadian Prime-Minister has been included on summit lists since 1976, while an EEC representative has attended G-7 summits since 1977.

As a rule, the discussion centres around the following issues the state of the economy and its prospects, problems pertaining to the settlement of international-trade issues, currency problems and East- West relationships. International political issues have been playing a more and more important role in the G-7's activities since the early 1980s (on a par with coordination of economic policies).
