IMF managing director Christine Lagarde and Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann at the G7 finance ministers' summit in Dresden, eastern Germany, on May 28, 2015Finance ministers and central bank governors of the Group of Seven wealthiest nations gathered in Dresden Thursday to seek ways of boosting global growth, while the Greek crisis also cast its shadow over the talks. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble had invited his counterparts from Britain, Canada, France, Italy, Japan and the United States for an "in-depth exchange of views" on a wide range of subjects, from the state of the global economy, to financial regulation, tax evasion, and ways of starving terror groups like the Islamic State of funding. Germany currently holds the rotating G7 presidency and has been at pains to stress that the Greek crisis is not officially on the agenda.
