A little History Lesson ... The G8 (Group of Eight) is a forum for the governments of eight of the world's largest economies. The group originated with a summit hosted by France in 1975 that brought together representatives from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. It was a Group of Six and over the years added Canada and Russia. Interestingly, the European Union is represented, but cannot host or chair summits.
Hope you are having a wonderful Presidents' Day ... we are enjoying the break!!
