The G7 are unlikely to agree on a policy response on how to boost growth at its gathering in Sendai, Japan this week.  According to reports, rifts have appeared amongst participants regarding coordinated fiscal action to spur global demand, with Germany warning of the dangers of excessive monetary loosening in response to calls from Japan and the US to boost fiscal stimulus. Commentators believe that the G7 will have to agree on a "go-your-own-way" response to address risks hindering global economic growth, if they are unable to agree on concrete steps to bolster stagnant global growth. Brexit is expected to be high on the agenda, as will cybersecurity.
