The Ecommerce News Roundup – 14 June 2021

Cornwall hosted the latest G7 gathering this weekend and it looks like Johnson and Macron won’t be inviting each other out for a drink any time soon…

Progress was made on global climate change policy (and funding) and the promise of 1 billion Covid vaccine doses for poorer countries was also agreed – a positive step forward, even if it’s not the perfect solution just yet.

On a more local level £460,000 has been raised in the last 6 weeks enabling villagers to buy and refurbish their local pub in Gwynedd.

We never cease to be amazed by what can be achieved when people truly work together towards a common goal.

As always, below is your weekly dose of ecommerce news to enjoy.
