The Carbis Bay Estate in Cornwall is set to host the G7 summit in June, which US President Joe Biden is expected to attend.

Boris Johnson will host this year’s summit where he will urge world leaders to unite in “building back better” from the pandemic.

Joe Biden, is expected to attend the event starting on 11 June alongside the other G7 leaders from Japan, Canada, France, Germany and Italy. The Prime Minister has also invited India, Australia and South Korea to attend as guests.

It will be nearly two years since the summit met in person after the US moved the 46th meeting online due to the pandemic.

The four-star Carbis Bay Estate, a 25-acre private beach and a luxury spa will play host this time, with neighbouring St Ives and other towns across the region supporting the summit.

The Prime Minister said Cornwall “is the perfect location for such a crucial summit”.

“Two hundred years ago Cornwall’s tin and copper mines were at the heart of the UK’s industrial revolution and this summer Cornwall will again be the nucleus of great global change and advancement.”

Visit Cornwall estimates the summit could bring a £50m boost to the regional economy from immediate benefits and projected tourism growth.
