The Group of Eight and member states of the European Union (lighter green) which have influence but not franchise.
English: Media concerning the G6, G7 and now G8 economic powers.

The Group of Eight (G8, and formerly the (G6) or Group of Six) was an international forum for the governments of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union (but the EU does not have the right to host or chair a meeting).

The G8 can refer to the member states or to the annual summit meeting of the G8 heads of government. The former term G6 is now frequently applied to the six most populous countries within the European Union (see G6 (EU)). G8 ministers also meet throughout the year, such as the G7/8 finance ministers (who meet four times a year), G8 foreign ministers or G8 environment ministers.
