January 16, 2021

Commenting on the announcement that Cornwall is to host the G7 summit of world leaders in June, Mark Duddridge, Chair of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, said:

“This is a once in a generation opportunity to put Cornwall and its ambitions on a global stage and secure a lasting economic legacy for our region. Cornwall strives to be an exemplar of a better tomorrow, a place to test and prove new technologies, new ways of working, and economic inclusion. Cornwall has a history of exporting its ideas, technology and people around the world and that continues today. We can play an internationally significant role in pioneering a decarbonised economy that creates opportunity, harnesses our natural capital and safeguards our planet for future generations. This summit is a tremendous opportunity to highlight Cornwall’s contribution to positive global change. We look forward to extending a warm Cornish welcome and forging new partnerships with our friends from around the world.”
