This Summit will be attended by the Heads of State of the seven main powers, Germany, Canada, the United States, France, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom and this year the President of the acting Spanish Government will attend as a guest.
The operational deployment began on the 12th, when Civil Guard agents were integrated into French Gendarmerie Units, providing prevention services jointly.
Units and Specialties of the Civil Guard of Public, Fiscal and Border Security, of the Traffic Group, of the Reserve and Security Group, of the Rapid Action Group, of the Maritime Service and of the Air Service, among others, participate in this operation.

In this operation, the Civil Guard in France carries out preventive safety and identification tasks for vehicles and their occupants, communication routes as well as protection and security of critical infrastructures.
The operation is being directed from the Police Coordination Center, established in Biarritz, in which Civil Guard agents are framed for management, coordination and information exchange. Reciprocally, agents of the French Gendarmerie are integrated in Spain within the Civil Guard Units.
As the dates of the G7 summit approach, all the efforts that the Civil Guard is making will be increased with special units in the protection of events and people.
Both in Spanish territory and in France, the Civil Guard is intensifying the preventive services for border control, in order to avoid protest actions of the anti-globalization movement groups that form the so-called “counter-summit” that intend to oppose and destabilize the celebration of the G7 summit.
