    The D Brief

Today is day one of the G7 Summit, hosted this year at the coastal British county of Cornwall. The White House’s goals for the summit include President Biden’s intention to “reinforce our commitment to multilateralism, work to advance key U.S. policy priorities on public health, economic recovery, and inclusive growth, and demonstrate solidarity and shared values among major democracies.”

On the G7 docket today: “a global minimum tax of at least 15% on corporations, following an agreement reached a week ago by their finance ministers” to eliminate tax havens, the Associated Press previews. Climate change is also expected to animate Group of Seven discussions this weekend.

The latest from Cornwall: “Leaders Will Pledge to Donate 1 Billion Covid Vaccine Doses,” via the New York Times.
