May 9 conference to discuss G7 agenda

The Boston Global Forum will hold a conference  on May 9 on the agenda of the G7 Summit, which is coming up on  May 26-27, in Japan. The BGF conference, to start at   6 p.m. on May 9, will be held at the Harvard Faculty Club in Cambridge. The meeting is part of The Boston Global Forum's BGF-G7 Summit Initiative, in which BGF experts have been working with Japanese officials to craft proposals to present to the national leaders  for consideration at the summit.

The initiative has been discussing a wide range of issues, from security in Asia in the face of North Korea and Chinese militarism, the global economy, public health, global warming and sustainable infrastructure improvements. But the BGF's biggest priority this year is addressing cybersecurity threats, a topic to which the BGF has drawn internationally known cybersecurity experts to make recommendations.
