This year's G8 summit will take place in Lough Erne in Northern Ireland and will be chaired by UK Prime Minister David Cameron. The European Union is a full member of the G8 and is represented by European Council President Van Rompuy and European Commission President Barroso.

In Lough Erne the European Union will be fully engaged to find common solutions to the pressing challenges on the agenda, ranging from measures to support the global economy and create jobs, from promoting greater transparency in taxation to foreign and security issues like the fight against terrorism and achieving a political solution to the appalling crisis in Syria. Promoting fairness and sustainable growth, jobs and development will be at the heart of the EU's ambition for this G8 summit under UK with a special focus on the three T's: trade, tax and transparency.
