The G8 summit in Deauville, 26-27 May 2011
The two-day summit of the G8 leaders starts in the French town of Deauville. The main topic will definitely be the Arab Spring. The leaders of the 8 most developed industrial nations in the world will try to find a way to help politically and economically the countries in North Africa and the Middle East, fighting for democracy. Another important issue will be nuclear safety in the context of the accident in the Japanese nuclear power station Fukushima, as well as climate change. Although it is not included in the official agenda of the summit, the issue of a new managing director of the IMF will probably dominate the forum and the bilateral meetings. The European Union will probably look for support for its candidate for the position - French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde. euinside's team will follow the event and will inform you about the debates and the decisions.
