The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, will be in Tokyo, Japan, from October 10-14 to discuss global economic developments during meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank.
“It remains essential that the international community continues to work together to address the risks facing the global economy,” said Minister Flaherty. “As co-chair of the G-20 Working Group on the Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth, Canada has an important role at these meetings and continues to lead by example with our solid fiscal fundamentals and our Economic Action Plan for jobs, growth and long-term prosperity.”
The meetings will involve frank discussions among parties on global economic risks and the actions needed to address them.
