Dear Readers,

Firstly, I hope you and yours are keeping safe and healthy.

What a difficult last 20 months, with the COVID-19 pandemic still lingering, and no G7 Summit for the first time in 24 years, and a G20 virtual summit, 2020 was indeed a year to remember.

In our own world of publishing, everything has also been upside down. This year marks an auspicious milestone for The CAT Company and myself. My 25th anniversary of publishing the G7 Summit publication has now evolved to the Group of Nations brand and Global Briefing Report Review. We are constantly changing and pioneering new and engaging ways for our audiences.  

Our company's mission has been and continues to be to educate the global community on the most vital topics affecting our society and the agenda and leaders at the G7, G20, APEC and all related summits.

With our award-winning Group of Nations Global Briefing Report, we have created an unprecedented opportunity for private sector leaders and civil society to have a voice at these summits even when they don't have a physical seat at the table.

I want to thank all our Knowledge Partners for their help in making these publications an excellent resource for the G20, G7 and APEC  global community to understand better the vital work that needs to be accomplished to make the world a better place for us now and for future generations.

We are also extremely excited about our new venture. On November 17th, the Group of Nations "Solutions through Inclusivity" G20- G7 fully immersive Virtual summit will take place.  We have over 50 speakers from world-renowned organizations who have joined forces with us to be our knowledge partners, all doing their part in helping to have a more inclusive dialogue. You can register here. I also hope you enjoy the 12th annual G20 Italy issue featuring COP26.


Our team is excited and already working on next year's publications and Summits. Do reach out to us with your ideas and questions, and we will be happy to work with you.

Yours Sincerely,
Chris Atkins

Founder and publisher
