Christoph Heusgen, the chair of the Munich Security Conference, has expressed his support for expanding the Group of Seven (G-7) industrialized nations in order to keep the forum relevant.

Heusgen believes it is important for the G-7 to expand, as it is a group of countries that share common values and are democratic with a market economy.

However, he also acknowledges that the economic weight of these countries is decreasing, which is why he thinks expansion would be beneficial.

Currently, the G-7 consists of Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Canada, the United States, and Britain. Heusgen suggests that countries like South Korea and Australia should join to increase coordination leverage.

Heusgen is the chair of the Munich Security Conference, an annual event in Bavaria that brings together world leaders, defense officials, and foreign policy officials.

The leaders of the Group of Twenty (G-20), a broader grouping of the world’s largest economies, are set to meet in New Delhi, India this weekend.
