G7 Ministerial Documents


The 2013 G8 Summit took place on June 17 and 18 at Lough Erne, Northern Ireland, and was hosted by UK Prime Minister David Cameron. The 2013 agenda focused on the state of the global economy, including ways to foster stronger and more sustainable growth. G8 Leaders also addressed international political and security challenges, such as those in Syria, Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan and the Sahel. Additionally, G8 members discussed ways to foster trade, ensure tax compliance, and promote greater corporate and government transparency (3Ts).

Building on the leadership role played by Canada, which published the first comprehensive accountability report in 2010, the Muskoka Accountability Report, the UK published the Lough Erne Accountability Report. The Lough Erne Report was the second comprehensive G8 accountability exercise, and helped to demonstrate implementation by G8 members of their previous G8 commitments.

The Lough Erne agenda also followed up on ongoing G8 priorities, including the Muskoka Initiative on Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, the Deauville Partnership and the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition.
