Northern Ireland to host G8 summit in 2013
The leaders of eight of the world's richest countries will meet in Northern Ireland for their annual summit in June 2013, British Prime Minister David Cameron said.
Lough Erne golf resort will be the main venue for the G8 summit, scheduled for June 17-18.
"I think this will be a brilliant advertisement for Northern Ireland. I want the world to see just what a fantastic place Northern Ireland is - a great place for business, a great place for investment, a place with an incredibly educated and trained workforce ready to work for international business," Cameron said.
Britain last received the leaders of the US, Canada, Russia, Germany, Italy, France and Japan in 2005 in Gleneagles, Scotland.
