1The G8 Process Setup

The presidency of the G8 rotates annually among the member countries, with each new term beginning on January 1 of the new calendar year and ending on December 31. The time from January 1 to the actual G8 summit is the preparation process, where the country holding the presidency holds a series of meetings. The time following the summit is the transition and adjustment period with the chair of the next summit. The discussion held during this period will feed into the next G8 summit process.

2Meetings in the G8 Process

The meetings that make up the G8 Process can be divided into the following:

  1. Meetings exclusive to government officials of G8 countries
  2. Meetings held with additional countries, institutions and foundations
  3. Meetings held with civil society

These meetings, which are a part of the G8 process, are held continuously from January to the actual summit.
