Standing with Ukraine for as long as it takes. Tackling energy prices spikes. Protecting the world from a food crisis. Investing in quality infrastructure. Democracies deliver. Even more so when they are united. This is what the @g7 stands for.

€100 billion disbursed under #NextGenerationEU ! Thanks to the good progress of reforms and investments on the ground. It also means that €700 billion are still to be invested in the coming years. In a period of uncertainty, this will give Europe’s economy a major boost.

2 - We need to be better prepared. I fully support the G7 Pact for Pandemic Readiness to enhance global health surveillance. We have also been discussing the Global Pandemic Preparedness Fund. The EU pledged $450 million to support the setup of the fund.

Discussed the fight against COVID. Two takeaways: 1 - local vaccine production capacity is key. #TeamEurope invests €1 billion in Africa for this and supports Latin American partners. We repurposed €300 million of EU funds, from vaccine purchase to support for vaccination.

Discussion with our G7 partners on climate and health. Climate change affects us all. So we must maintain our ambitious climate goals. This requires close, inclusive international coordination. Renewables will play a key role in ensuring both ambition and security of supply.

🇪🇺🇺🇸 are stepping up cooperation on energy security. We work hand in hand to diversify Europe’s supply and stay the course on our joint climate neutrality goal. We will also explore ways to further cut Russia’s revenues from energy, used to fund its war on Ukraine.

Last year we committed to stepping up investments in sustainable infrastructure.   Today these investments are more needed than ever. Europe’s answer is #GlobalGateway .   €300 billion of public and private funds, invested in full transparency and partnership.
