Microsoft and BlackRock CEOs expected to attend G7 session in Italy

BARI, Italy (Reuters) – Executives from U.S. majors Microsoft and BlackRock are expected to take part in talks on infrastructure development at the Group of Seven (G7) summit in southern Italy on Thursday, two sources said close to the file.

Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, and Larry Fink, his counterpart at asset manager BlackRock, will be joined by Italian business figures, including the heads of energy group Eni, utility Enel and investment group public CDP.

They will participate in negotiations on the G7 Global Infrastructure and Investment Partnership on Thursday afternoon in Borgo Egnazia.

The session is expected to focus on development in Africa, one of the key themes of the June 13-15 G7 leaders’ summit, hosted by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

BlackRock declined to comment, while Microsoft was not immediately available for comment.
