World leaders kick off G7 talks with economy in focus

The World leaders begin two days of G7 talks in Japan with the deteriorating global economy, terrorism and refugees crisis, China’s controversial maritime claims, and a possible Brexit headlining on top the agenda. Heads of state and government from the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and host Japan are meeting in Ise Shima, a mountainous, sparsely populated area about 300 kilometres (200 miles) southwest of Tokyo.

 

The group, including US President Barack Obama arrived in Japan for the summit, kicking off a historic visit that will also take him to the atomic-bombed city of Hiroshima. Besides, Britain’s David Cameron, whose country’s referendum next month on continued membership of the European Union was likely to figure prominently on the summit agenda. The summit will be joined by the France’s Francois Hollande and Germany’s Angela Merkel. However, the meeting will also be joined by Italy’s Matteo Renzi, Canada’s Justin Trudeau and host Japan’s Shinzo Abe.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the country which is hosting the G7 summit 2016 ?
2. Total how many countries are the member of G7 group and also name all the G7 countries ?
