Is the G7 dead?

七国集团是不是已经凉了?



There’s no secret that this forum’s influence has been waning in the last decade or two. With China and India’s rise, why should Canada and Italy have a disproportionate amount of global influence. The USA already dominates the G7 nations and its economy is larger than all the other G7 nations combined. At the latest meeting it was evident that Trump does not take this group seriously. I think many Americans have held similar views for some time.

这个论坛的影响力在过去的十到二十年里一直在减弱,这已经不是什么秘密了。随着中国和印度的崛起,加拿大和意大利为什么还要拥有不不符自身实力的全球影响力?美国已经控制了七国集团国家,其经济规模超过了所有其他七国集团国家的总和。在最近的一次会议上,很明显,特朗普没有认真对待这个集团。我认为许多美国人在一段时间内都持有类似的观点。

I propose a group of consisting of China, USA, India, EU, Japan (and perhaps UK, France, Germany, Russia and Brazil) replace the G7 as the preeminent global economic leadership forum.
There’s no way we can tackle climate change, failed states, and global poverty without an intimate annual meeting that includes the world’s major players.

我提议由中国、美国、印度、欧盟、日本(或许还有英国、法国、德国、俄罗斯和巴西)组成的集团,取代七国集团(G7)作为全球经济领袖论坛。如果没有包括世界主要参与者的亲密年度会议,我们就不可能解决气候变化、失败的国家和全球贫困问题。

I do believe middle powers should play a role, so perhaps rotate in 3 G20 countries each year to give the group some balance.

我确实认为,中等国家应该扮演一个角色,因此,或许每年都让3个G20国家到G7集团轮值,以给该集团一些平衡。
