Opinion | Invite South Korea into the Group of Seven

South Korea is also showing itself to be a good global citizen, as the host nation of the Green Climate Fund and for steadily increasing its official development assistance (ODA) since it joined the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in 2010. In 2020, South Korea had the highest share of bilateral ODA for the health sector among all DAC members. Adding South Korea to the G-7 would also improve the geographic balance of the group (four European, two North American and two Asian countries) and remind Russia of what it lost when it invaded Crimea. The current rapprochement between Japan and South Korea should be the icing on the cake for this expanded membership.
