The meeting of the world's largest economies in Biarritz in France ended with some hope that China and the US could be moving to resolve the escalating trade war. President Trump also said he'd consider sitting down with Iran but warned of "violent force" if the Iranian leader didn't change his approach. Prime minister Scott Morrison, who attended the summit as an invited observer, declared he thinks Australia can reach a free trade agreement with the UK in less than a year.
Also at the summit international leaders agreed to provide 33 million dollars to help fight fires in the amazon rainforest. Raging wildfires fires in the world's largest rainforest have surged 83% so far this year. The funding was announced in Biarritz by French president Emmanuel Macron. Last week he described the fires as an international emergency. He also said an international initiative for the Amazon would be launched in the coming months at the United Nations.
The number of Australians dying from accidental drug overdoses has climbed by almost 40 per cent in the last decade. According to the annual overdose report from the Pennington Insitute in 2017 one thousand six hundred people died from an accidental drug overdose. The new figures reveal a dramatic spike in the number of overdose deaths involving heroin or stimulants such as methamphetamine in the last five years. But prescription opioids continue to cause the majority of overdose deaths.
同时，国际领导人在峰会期间还就提供3300万美元协助亚马逊热带雨林灭火一事达成一致 。今年到目前为止，肆虐世界最大热带雨林的火灾数量已激增了83% 。提供援助资金的决定由法国总统埃马纽埃尔·马克龙在比亚里茨宣布 。上周，马克龙曾称亚马逊雨林的大火是国际紧急事件 。他还表示，救援亚马逊雨林的国际行动将于未来几个月在联合国启动 。
过去10年，澳大利亚因意外药物过量死亡的人数攀升了近40% 。据彭宁顿研究所发布的年度药物过量报告，2017年有1600人死于意外药物过量 。新数据表明，过去五年，因海洛因或甲基苯丙胺等兴奋剂过量而死亡的人数急剧增加 。但类阿片类处方药仍是导致大多数药物过量死亡病例的元凶 。
