Despite the beautiful coastline and countryside that will act as the backdrop to the latest G-7 meet-up, Cornwall is one of the poorest regions in the U.K. and is heavily reliant on agriculture and seasonal tourism.

Unemployment more than doubled in the region during the pandemic and the U.K. government has pledged millions of pounds’ worth of long-term investment in the region as part of a G-7 legacy. It’s hoped the high-profile event and increase in future tourism will lead to an economic boost of around £50 million ($70.5 million) for Cornwall.
