United States: G7 to Announce Joint Actions on Forced Labor in Global Supply Chains, Anticorruption, and Ransomware

President Biden and leaders from G7 will demonstrate that we are unified by our shared values and a collective resolve among major democracies to meet today’s challenges.  President Biden and leaders agreed to a set of concrete actions around key priorities responding to forced labour in global supply chains, the ransomware threat, and fighting corruption.

The United States and G7 Commit to Removing Forced Labor from Global Supply Chains: The United States and our G7 partners remain deeply concerned by the use of all forms of forced labour in global supply chains, including state-sponsored forced labour of vulnerable groups and minorities and supply chains of the agricultural, solar, and garment sectors—the main supply chains of concern in Xinjiang.  Leaders agreed on the importance of upholding human rights and international labour standards and committed to protecting individuals from forced labour.  We welcome the commitment of our G7 partners to ensure all global supply chains are free from the use of forced labour.  We look forward to identifying areas for strengthened cooperation and collective efforts to eradicate the use of all forms of forced labour in global supply chains, in accordance with international and national law.
