US: Western democracies are in a race to compete with autocratic governments, U.S. President Joe Biden said on Sunday.
“We’re in a contest, not with China per se, … with autocrats, autocratic governments around the world, as to whether or not democracies can compete with them in a rapidly changing 21st century,” Biden told a news conference at the conclusion of a Group of Seven leaders’ summit in Britain.
On China specifically, Biden said: “I think you’re gonna see just straightforward dealing with China.
“As I’ve told Xi Jinping myself, I’m not looking for conflict. Where we cooperate, we’ll cooperate; where we disagree I’m going to state this frankly, and we are going to respond to actions that are inconsistent.”
Eurozone: German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday said she hoped that a new Group of Seven task force can present first infrastructure projects in developing countries in 2022.
The world’s seven most advanced economies signalled during the summit a desire to build a rival to China’s multitrillion-dollar Belt and Road initiative.
U.S. President Joe Biden and other G7 leaders hope their plan, known as the Build Back Better World (B3W) initiative, will help narrow the $40 trillion needed by developing nations by 2035, the White House said.
It was not immediately clear how exactly the plan would work or how much capital it would ultimately allocate.
The G7 had recognised that they had to deliver support for the development of poorer countries, Merkel said at a news conference.
“For countries in need of development, only concrete projects count,” she said. “I hope that we will be able to present such projects already during the next G7 summit, which will be in Germany.”
Germany will take over the G7 presidency from Britain next year.
