G8 Finance Ministers Meeting
This year Russia is the first to chair the G8 (hereinafter G8). As part of the Russian Chairmanship, many interstate meetings and consultations are held. In particular, on June 9-10, 2006, a meeting of G8 Finance Ministers was held in St. Petersburg.
The G8 is a group of the most economically developed and politically significant countries of the world, which largely determines the main trends in the global economy and politics.
At their regular meetings, the G8 countries work out a coordinated economic and financial policy and consider the most important foreign policy issues. During the meetings, the G8 countries actually determine the main guidelines for the global economic community. The main issues for discussion are: issues of energy security, problems of relations with developing countries, including issues of ensuring their sustainable development, East-West economic ties, globalization of the world economy, increasing economic growth and international trade, macroeconomic management, employment, and the fight against terrorism.
The decisions taken by the G8 reflect the vision of the main international economic and foreign policy problems of the G8 itself and are framed in the form of a final statement, which is the main political document of the summits.
Holding meetings on the territory of the Russian Federation will allow Russia to increase confidence on the part of the member countries of the group and other world powers, international financial and economic organizations, business circles, investors and will help create a favorable investment climate.
