Leveraging Public Procurement to #BuildBackBetter
In 2021, amidst a global pandemic, a post-Brexit, globally ambitious United Kingdom assumes the G7 Presidency. Hosting this year’s G7 summit presents the UK with the opportunity to unite the world’s most advanced economies around a more inclusive and sustainable #BuildBackBetter agenda. The Group of Seven consists of the USA, under newly elected President Biden; three EU member states – Germany, France, and Italy; the UK, Canada, and Japan. Operating as a newly independent trading nation, the UK has now secured trade agreements covering all but one, the USA, of the G7 countries, which combined make up a third of an increasingly inequitable global economy.
