The 39th G8 Summit was held on 17 and 18 June 2013 at the Lough Erne Resort in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, under British Presidency. The European Union was represented by José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, and Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council. The G8 Heads of State or Government were: David Cameron, British Prime Minister, Angela Merkel, German Federal Chancellor, François Hollande, President of the French Republic, Enrico Letta, Italian Prime Minister, Barack Obama, President of the United States, Stephen Harper, Canadian Prime Minister, Shinzō Abe, Japanese Prime Minister, and Vladimir Putin, President of Russia. They had a good discussion of the global economy. All leaders agreed that the urgent priority is to promote growth and jobs, particularly for the young and long-term unemployed. While recognising that the economic situation had improved since the last G8 Summit in May 2012, they all agreed on the need to continue supporting the global recovery by supporting demand, ensuring healthy public finances and implementing structural reforms. The G8 discussion of foreign policy focused in-depth on the appalling crisis in Syria. The EU leaders stressed the need to press for a political solution via convening a Geneva II conference as soon as possible and simultaneously address the gravely escalating humanitarian crisis that also threatens regional stability as a matter of urgency. All G8 leaders seized and reinforced the momentum in the global fight against tax evasion and tax fraud. The G8 made a strong call for increased transparency. Furthermore, in the margins of the Summit, José Manuel Barroso and Herman van Rompuy, together with Barack Obama, launched the historic negotiations for an unprecedented Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the European Union and the United States. Still in the margins of the Summit, José Manuel Barroso and Herman van Rompuy had the opportunity to hold a trilateral meeting with Shinzō Abe to discuss the relations between the EU and Japan.

00:14:20 SOUNDBITE by José Manuel Barroso (in ENGLISH) saying that this is his ninth G8 Summit and that he can compare the discussions at the G8 Summits with the discussions at the G20 Summits; these discussions are more informal, more intimate, deeper of course because of the more informal format of the meeting; in fact, the G8 debates were in many cases successful; saying that he remembers for instance precisely that at the G8 Summit in Gleneagles, in the UK, the discussions were extremely fruitful in some important areas regarding climate change and development; generally speaking, the G20 is now considered as the prime international forum for economic cooperation; it is more representative; saying that he doesn't see a contradiction between discussing issues in this more intimate format and what they have to do and decide in the more structured G20 format; saying that he is also looking forward to the G20 Summit in Saint Petersburg in September 2013 00:01:05

00:15:36 SOUNDBITE by Herman van Rompuy (in ENGLISH) saying that to the G8 partners, they will make clear that as far as Europe is concerned the situation has improved in terms of financial stability - and that they are focused on getting Europe out of the economic crisis; the euro is no longer under an existential threat; financial stability has been restored; deficits have been halved; competitiveness is improving and - as a result - exports are picking up. 00:00:30

00:16:09 SOUNDBITE by Herman van Rompuy (in ENGLISH) on Syria: saying that the EU is convinced that we are at a critical juncture; after tens of thousands of dead, millions of displaced and refugees, we are in front of a fractured and radicalized Syrian society, with a crisis affecting and even threatening the whole region; the recent Russian-US initiative to launch a political process of negotiations, based on the Geneva principles of June 2012, constitutes the best - and the only possible - chance we have to halt this conflict for which there is no military solution. 00:00:42
00:16:52 Cutaway of a photographer 00:00:04
00:16:55 SOUNDBITE by Herman van Rompuy (in ENGLISH) saying that the EU and its Member States continue to be the major international actor in addressing the humanitarian crisis in Syria and in the region; we have now provided up to more than 700 million euro in assistance and a recent additional package of 400 million was announced by the Commission on 6 June; so the EU is the largest donor with more than 1 billion euro; without the prospective of peace, the number of refugees could increase to 3.5 million by the end of 2013. 00:00:36
00:17:32 Cutaway of the speakers 00:00:05
00:17:36 SOUNDBITE by Herman van Rompuy (in ENGLISH) saying that he expects from this G8 a positive message for the global economy on growth, job creation and fighting unemployment; he expects a strong commitment to promote peace in Syria plunged into a dramatic civil war; he expects a clear message on the global determination to promote transparency and fight tax fraud and tax evasion; and finally, he expects significant progress when it comes to free trade with the TTIP between the EU and US as a trendsetter. 00:00:34
00:18:10 General view of the speakers 00:00:04
00:24:05 SOUNDBITE by Barack Obama (in ENGLISH) saying that America and Europe have done extraordinary things together before; he believes they can forge an economic alliance as strong as their diplomatic and security alliances, which of course have been the most powerful in history; and by doing that they can also strengthen the multilateral trading system; so this transatlantic trade and investment partnership is going to be a priority for him and his Administration; it is important that they get it right and that means resisting the temptation to downsize their ambitions or avoid tough issues just for the sake of getting a deal.

00:24:46 SOUNDBITE by Herman van Rompuy (in ENGLISH) saying that the US and Europe both know that there are no magic solutions; recent economic turbulence underlines it; but if they cannot expect to harvest new jobs today, they can plant the seeds for the jobs of tomorrow; and that’s exactly what a trade agreement is about; together, Europe and the United States are the backbone of the world economy; opening up that space further for opportunities for businesses and consumers is simply common sense; not just their own economies but also those of their trading partners will benefit; the positive ramifications will even go beyond the economy as such.

00:25:26 Cutaway of David Cameron 00:00:04
00:25:30 SOUNDBITE by Herman van Rompuy (in ENGLISH) saying that the economies all over the world are becoming more interdependent; this will make the world safer; what is at stake with a transatlantic free trade area, is to enshrine Europe and America's role as the world's standard setters, beyond product specifications, by setting a positive force in shaping the way we work, and the way we live our daily lives; this is of key strategic significance; the Atlantic is not the past, it is also the future.
