HALIFAX : Summit for the G-7

June 13, 1995

The major industrial democracies, known as the Group of Seven, hold their annual summit conference Thursday through Saturday in Halifax, Canada. President Clinton and the leaders of Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan will be joined by Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin for dinner Friday and informal discussion Saturday.

The G-7 members are expected to approve a program that would allow rapid response by the major economic powers to fast-moving international economic crises similar to the peso-meltdown in Mexico in December and January.

Overshadowing the opening of the talks will be a meeting Thursday afternoon between Clinton and Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama on contentious bilateral issues in the automobile trade.
