The g-barrelled groups constitute a vast class of abelian topological groups. It might be considered as a natural extension of the class of barrelled topological vector spaces. In this paper we prove that g-barrelledness is a multiplicative property, thus we obtain new examples of g-barrelled groups. We also prove that direct sums and inductive limits of g-barrelled locally quasi-convex groups are g-barrelled, too. Other permanence properties are considered as well.
