Boris Johnson has called on the leaders of the G7 to “not repeat the mistakes of the last 18 months” and to combat growing economic inequality as a result of the pandemic.

The ‘premier’ opened the official Carbis Bay conclave with a tone of ‘mea culpa’ and a collective purpose of amendment “to allow our economies to recover.” “We have the potential for a vigorous recovery and I have every reason to be optimistic,” said Johson. “But it is vital that we do not repeat the mistakes of the last great crisis, the great recession of 2008, when the recovery was not uniform across all sectors of society. “

“I think what has gone wrong with the pandemic, and what runs the risk of becoming a lasting scar, is that inequalities have entrenched,” added Johnson. “We have to make sure that recovery raises the bar for everyone in our societies and that we rebuild better.”

We do indeed have a great opportunity, as members of the G7, because we are united in a vision for a cleaner and greener world, as a solution to the problems of climate change “, concluded the ‘premier’ at the time of the group photo.” We are united around to those ideas and those technologies, and we are tackling the challenge together, and I think there is the potential to generate millions of highly skilled jobs. “

Johnson, who at the start of the day confirmed the commitment of the seven richest countries in donate a billion vaccines this year, recognized that the key will also be in greater unity in the face of the pandemic. However, the ‘premier’ avoided criticism about whether the donation of 100 million doses by the United Kingdom (compared to the 500 million announced the day before by Joe Biden) will be enough to alleviate the ostensible inequality in the global distribution of vaccines. .

“I think that people in our countries want to be sure that we defeat the pandemic together and that we will never repeat what we have seen, “concluded the G7 host.” They will also want to see us rebuild together, and do it in a greener, fairer and more equal way, in a more neutral way as regards the gender, or even in a more feminine way. What do you think? “
