On the afternoon of March 5, 2012, the White House issued a statement announcing that the location of the G8 summit would be changed from Chicago and would take place on May 18-19, 2012, instead of the previously announced dates of May 19-20. The full text of the announcement reads as follows:

Statement by the Press Secretary on the G8 and NATO Summits

To facilitate a free-flowing discussion with our close G-8 partners, the President is inviting his fellow G8 leaders to Camp David on May 18-19 for the G8 Summit, which will address a broad range of economic, political and security issues. The President will then welcome NATO allies and partners to his hometown of Chicago for the NATO Summit on May 20-21, which will be the premier opportunity this year for the President to continue his efforts to strengthen NATO in order to ensure that the Atlantic Alliance remains the most successful alliance in history, while charting the way forward in Afghanistan.
