Think 7 USA 2020 assembled 27 high-level experts from all G7 members with leading reputations in the five key areas that the G7 presidency itself had identified as the focus for this year’s summit: health, economic recovery, trade, energy and environment, and peace and security. Together, they created this report that contains 25 consensus recommendations. DGAP’s Claudia Schmucker contributed to the section on trade.
Geo-economics – one of DGAP’s core themes – explores how the politics of trade, technology, finance, and/or energy can be employed to achieve strategic goals. For Europe to remain a key player internationally, the continent must help define the rules of a new geo-economic world order. DGAP looks at how Germany can contribute to better positioning Europe in this increasingly competitive landscape.
