Jun 28-29, Japan: Prime minister Shinzo Abe welcomes G20 leaders to Osaka as they seek ways to ameliorate threats to global growth. The growing trade war between China and the U.S. is a major concern

Jun 26-27, U.S.: The Democratic Party kicks off its 2020 presidential primary debates. With 20 candidates in the ever-expanding field, the debates provide a first opportunity to stand out from
the pack

Jun 3-6, UK: Britain needs post-Brexit trading partners, an explanation for why, despite much
opposition, U.S. President Donald Trump is being flattered with a controversial full state visit
ahead of D-Day 75th anniversary events in England and France

Jun 6, France: Some 156,000 Allied forces launched a surprise invasion 75 years ago on the coast

Western Europe from Nazi control

out what makes something a toy

Jun 7-Jul 7, France: The Women’s World Cup will be the biggest to date, with 24 countries taking part. But while prize money has doubled to $30m, the men’s tournament has increased by more, meaning the gender pay gap has actually widened
